Course Overview

This course introduces students to theories and methods of two areas of study in linguistics: Syntax and Discourse. Syntax is concerned with the sentence as the unit of language, combining descriptions of events with communicative intentions, and grounding this into the reality of the here and now. The study of language in text and context is known in Linguistics as ”discourse analysis.” This course provides an introduction to approaches to discourse analysis as well as tools used in the analysis of discourse.
