Dr. Olivia Lam
MA Core course. Sem 1
Friday, 10:30 am – 1:20 pm (Venue: MB256)
This course offers an in-depth study of recent advances in syntactic research. Theories of language and theories of grammar are first discussed, followed by a consideration of the methods with which syntactic structures and syntactic functions are handled in the major theoretical frameworks. The role of the lexicon in these theories is examined. It is shown how these contemporary theories find applications in areas such as language learning.
