F577 introduces students to issues in the syntax of the French clause
and of the French noun phrase in relation to English, and to
principles of syntactic representations in Generative Grammar. This
course assumes good knowledge of French, however, no knowledge of
syntax is required. By the end of the term, students will have
experience collecting, organizing and analyzing linguistic data.
Textbooks are Syntaxe et sémantique du français and Syntaxe
du français: L’universel et le particulier dans la langue.
