Learning Outcomes
(a) The students must be able to recognise and identify the various syntactic phenomena, which they subsequently must also describe. (b) The students must understand the relation between modern syntactic theory and traditional/pedagogical grammar so that they can appreciate both and approach both critically. (c) To get used to the methods of collecting data about syntactic phenomena for syntactic analysis. (d) To familiarize with the comparative method so that they are able to compare a particular phenomenon (or class of phenomena) in various different languages. (e) To understand the relation between description and explanation, especially when the latter employs concepts and assumptions of a theory (generative), but also to the comparative method.
Course Content (Syllabus)
The aim of the course is the study of some of the most basic syntactic phenomena and structures of modern Greek. Among those that will be explored are word order and pro-drop, moods, distribution and function of pronominal clitics, sentence/clause types and aspects of the nominal structure. The theoretical tools and terminology that will be employed are those of the generative theory of Chomsky (1981, 1986, 1995, 2001), but the identification and description of the phenomena will also start from those of traditional syntax.
