Ling 165B Syntax II Winter 2007 1 Class meetings Sections meetings Mondays - Wednesdays 2pm-4pm #1A Fridays 9am-10am Haines A78 Bunche 3178 #1B Fridays 10am-11am Rolfe 3115 Instructors Teaching Assistant Dominique Sportiche Vincent Homer 3122 Campbell Hall 2207 Campbell (TA Room) 825-0634 (main office) 206-2661 [email protected] Office Hours M11:30am-12:30pm (an by appointment) M4-5pm; T11-12pm Goal : In this course, we exploit the basic concepts and analytic tools introduced in Ling120B (or equivalent) to probe deeper into the syntactic structures of natural languages. Ling 120b focuses on motivating the existence of constituent structures and on the type of grammatical model needed to describe and explain syntactic properties. This course will further develop this line of investigation, but will also focus on the properties of (discontinuous) syntactic dependencies (such as wh-movement). We may also talk about some of the relations between syntax (form) and Interpretation (meaning). Texts: Manuscript (Introduction to Linguistic Theory and Analysis) by Hilda Koopman, Dominique Sportiche and Edward Stabler as background text. Lecture notes and additional readings: These will be posted on the e-campus website for download.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
