LING 080. Syntax II
This course builds on introductory syntax courses by delving more deeply into familiar topics through primary readings and by exploring new areas that are not typically covered in introductory syntax. Possible topics include raising and control, applicatives, voice alternations, ergativity, and non-configurational languages; advanced topics in A-bar syntax will be covered, such as islands, the left periphery, wh- in situ, and relative clauses. Broader additional topics may include: experimental syntax, microsyntactic variation, working with data from grammars of less-studied languages, topics in the syntax-semantics interface, and contributions from work outside the Minimalist/GB/P&P framework.
