    Lecture
  • Semester 1: Thursday 11 am - 1 pm

Contact: Dr Alex Drummond
Overlap: None
Prerequisite: LIN037

This is an optional module which is aimed to put to practice the theoretical syntactic knowledge acquired in LIN402 and LIN037. In this module, each student will be guided through a small-scale research project in syntax, specifically going through the selection of a research topic, the articulation of a significant research question relative to that topic, the collection of empirical data that bears on the topic, the development of an account for such data, and the construction of the relevant argumentation and the articulation of the results. Instruction will be based on class lectures and on training seminar sessions. Students will be expected to give a presentation of their material.
