Upon completion of the course, the students will have

• adopted appropriate terms and concepts to apply in their own analyses of grammar and language
• and reflected on how they may use such tools in their future work as language teachers or as other language professionals.


Description and analysis of linguistic constituents, clause elements, classes of clauses and clause types; principles of combining clauses and constituents; semantic description of clauses.
