S611	Advanced Spanish Syntax

TR 11:15a – 12:30p/section# 28323/3 cr./WH 118

The course is a seminar on the syntax-semantic interface, in
particular the syntax of scope, taking Spanish as a point of
departure. We will examine scope as the semantic derivative of
constituent structure in three domains. First, in the argumental
domain, by looking at the interaction of quantifiers. Second, in the
checking domain, by examining the interactions between tense, modals
and adverbs. And finally, in the discursive domain, by looking at
the properties of the speaker projection.
