Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Noun phrases play a crucial role in everyday communication, typically providing information about the things we want to talk about. For this reason they have been studied in great detail: there’s a wealth of literature on both their internal structure and their various semantic and discourse-pragmatic functions. Nevertheless, there are still numerous unresolved issues, which require further (empirical) research. The aim of this class is to focus on some of these issues (in particular those concerning modification and determination/quantification) and to see whether the use of corpus data can shed light on some problematic and as yet underresearched aspects of the English noun phrase.
