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 sportich@ucla.edu 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. They sometimes contain some material not covered in class that you are supposed to know.
