Description: This is a course in grammar (primarily sentence structure of syntax) and parsing of sentences. Although discussions of standard and non-standard sentence patterns and verb forms will be part of the course, the course will primarily emphasize study of, reflection on, and analysis of the variety of grammatical choices available to writers and speakers, first at the sentence level and later at the level of longer texts. Students will parse sentences using phrase structure (tree) diagrams, complete sentence practices to expand and develop their repertoire of sentence options, and read a novel to analyze how syntax reinforces theme. They will be required to lead discussions and deliver a lecture.
