This is an advanced survey of descriptive English grammar. We will look closely at the formal and semantic motivations for basic grammatical categories and processes in English (words, phrases, clauses, and sentences) and we will discuss how these structures contribute to the expressive potential of the system. There will be daily practice in grammatical parsing, weekly quizzes, and a final exam. The course should be attractive to those professionally interested in English education, practical criticism, or further work in linguistic theory — as well as those generally interested in becoming more articulate about the structure of our language.

Texts: Randolph Quirk and Sidney Greenbaum, A Student’s Grammar of the English Language and John Algeo, Exercises in Contemporary English.
