Contemporary Spanish Syntax

Contemporary Spanish Syntax
*Three-week course, second semester*

This is an introductory course with theoretical and practical aims. It will discuss the structure and typology of the sentence in standard current Spanish (simple and compound sentences; model sentences; types of dependent and independent sentences; types of connectors). We will analyze the types of relations of different components in the sentence. The main goals of this course are: (i) to prepare for a theoretical - practical knowledge of Spanish that goes beyond the mere use; (ii) to find explanations to certain daily uses; (iii) to learn to establish questions about the internal functioning of contemporary Spanish in his use and in his norm; (iv) to familiarize with the technical grammatical vocabulary; (v) to attempt an integrated explanation of different syntactic aspects and grammatical elements of Spanish. This course will combine the explanations of theoretical and informative nature by the teacher, with the activities and exercises of practical nature that will be assigned to the students. (.5 unit)
