Russian Syntax & Punctuation

Russian Syntax and Punctuation

Russian syntax is a very interesting and important part of Russian grammar. Without knowledge of Russian syntactic constructions, one cannot understand the rules of Russian punctuation. We will examine all the main Russian syntactic structures, such as verbal and nominal word combinations and simple and compound sentences, and discuss “free” word order in Russian. Students will listen to lectures, complete exercises, read Russian writers and analyze their texts, and write essays. Grades will be determined according to participation in class discussions, homework, weekly tests and compositions, and a final exam.
