About the course:

This course examines morphology and syntax in English texts from two time periods. While inflections played an important role in Old English grammar, Present-day English relies primarily on structures where word order and function words are of central importance. Students thus investigate morphological and syntactic aspects of Old and Present-day English texts. Through independent research projects, students also learn how to apply methods of morphosyntactic analysis to authentic texts in order to describe the structure of English.
