About the course:
The course provides a comprehensive overview of a selection of syntactic patterns as an illustration of their typical characteristics in the languages of the world. Some examples of syntactic constructions which could be treated on the course are: word class systems (typical characteristics for the main word classes; how universal are the word classes noun, verb, adjective and adverb) and clause combining (coordination, subordination, clause chains, serial verb constructions). Analysis and discussion of the treated syntactic constructions will illustrate how syntactic patterns in Swedish and English are similar or different from the patterns which are common in the languages of the world.
