About this course

Syntax MA: Our course gives students who have little or no previous background in syntactic theory a good grounding in the most influential current models within generative syntax: Chomsky's minimalist programme on the one hand, and lexical-functional grammar (LFG) and head-driven phrase structure grammar (HPSG) framework on the other. We also offer specialised modules which bring students up-to-date with recent research in more specific areas of syntax, or in areas which impinge on syntax (e.g. morphology and semantics).


Modules include: English syntax 1; English syntax 2; introduction to head-driven phrase structure grammar; minimalism syntax 2; minimalist syntax 1; topics in head-driven phrase structure grammar; dissertation.
