This Übung provides a systematic and practically-oriented introduction to English syntax, the study of the internal structure of phrases, clauses and sentences. The aim of the course is to help students develop analytic skills to explore the patterns of English syntax, and learn precise ways of doing syntactic analysis for a variety of constructions. Based on Quirk et al.’s (1985) Comprehensive Grammar of the English Language (CGEL), we will discuss various central topics (e.g. parts of speech, phrase structure, syntactic functions, coordination, subordination, multi-word verbs etc.), which will then be taken as a springboard for practical exercises. Sentences taken from the state exam will serve as the textual basis for a broad range of in-depth, problem-oriented syntactic analyses.
