EN 3023 - English Grammar and Linguistics (3) SP


An eclectic introduction to important concepts in linguistics, focusing on structural and transformational grammar. More specifically, this course examines phonological, morphological, syntactic, and semantic patterns and their transformations; form and function in the several word classes; and the relation of dialects to grammatical and linguistic concepts. Class discussions, assigned readings, and exercises aim at discovery of principles by which we generate and analyze the structures of Standard American English, with special attention to grammatical terminology that is especially useful for teachers and writers.

Prerequisite:EN 2903  and EN 3013. Required of English teaching majors.
