An advanced course in syntax resuming in more detail topics covered only in essentials in Syntax I (syntax of the nonfinite verb forms, multiple sentence) and introducing new topics: the semantics of negation, word order as a polyfunctional device, functional sentence perspective, syntactic discontinuities, focusing constructions, syntactic ambiguities, garden path phenomena, and grammatical devices of hypersyntax.

Syllabus -
Last update: PhDr. Gabriela Brůhová, Ph.D. (15.01.2019)

An advanced course in syntax resuming in more detail topics covered only in essentials in Syntax I (syntax of the nonfinite verb forms, multiple sentence) and introducing new topics: the semantics of negation, word order as a polyfunctional device, functional sentence perspective, syntactic discontinuities, focusing constructions, syntactic ambiguities, garden path phenomena, and grammatical devices of hypersyntax.

1.Syntax of the infinitive (constructions with the underlying subject function; infinitive as subject complement
2.Syntax of the infinitive (infinitive in the function of object, adverbial and postmodification)
3. Syntax of the ing-form
4. Multiple sentence: coordination vs. subordination (levels of syntactic dependence)
5. Multiple sentence (adjunct, disjunct and conjunct functions of adverbial clauses; different functions of clauses introduced by the same subordinator) 6. Word order as a polyfunctional device: grammatical factor, semantic factor, and a means of expressing emotion and emphasis.
7. Word order (linear modification) as a factor of functional sentence perspective; other factors of functional sentence perspective
8. Cleft sentence
9. Structural discontinuities
10. Syntactic ambiguities and garden path phenomena

11. The semantics of negation
12. Ellipsis

13. Hypersyntax: grammatical devices of textual cohesion

Requirements: regular attendance and work in the seminar + seminar paper (syntactic analysis of examples of the points treated in the seminar) Assessment: credit-optional subject of the examination in Special Programme English Language and LinguisticsLiterature
