Adv Grammar & Intro Hisp Ling

Advanced Spanish Grammar and Introduction to Hispanic Linguistics

This mandatory course for first summer graduate students is a two-hour class. One hour is focused in some of more relevant topics on Spanish grammar such as: a) uses of ser and estar; b) uses of indicative tenses, paying special attention to past forms; c) the subjunctive; d) study of subordinate clauses, focusing on the uses of subordinate conjunctions and values of indicative and subjunctive in these sentences. This part has a theoretical and a practical approach in order to improve the comprehension of Spanish grammar issues and how they can be explained. In the other hour, the course will serve as an introduction to the basic concepts of Hispanic linguistics in order to provide a better understanding of the linguistic courses throughout the MA program.
