This week’s topic is syntax, which is the part of linguistics that you’ve probably most often heard referred to as “grammar” in other classes. It has to do with sentence structure, and the way that words come together to form complex and coherent messages. Please read chapters 11 and 12 in Rickerson & Hilton and chapter 6 in Crystal. Both books are available on the Readings & Videos page. I hope to post a video soon.
After you’ve done the readings, please do the discussion board post for this week.
Also, if you haven’t already submitted Quiz #5, which was due yesterday, please submit it as soon as possible.
