HISP-S 427  The Structure of Spanish  (3 credits)       LINGUISTICS
Prerequisite:  S310 or equivalent for those students who
matriculated prior to Summer 2003. S326 for those students who
matriculated Summer 2003 or after.

The course is an introduction to Spanish Syntax. It has two inter-
dependent goals. On one hand, we will study the theory of Universal
Grammar to better understand the syntactic properties of Spanish. On
the other hand, we will study the particular properties of Spanish
to increase our understanding of Universal Grammar. To achieve these
goals, we will study the basic principles to express constituency
and syntactic dependencies, as well as the mechanisms to account for
cross-linguistic and cross-dialectal syntactic variation.
