Message 1: grammar in schools

Subject: grammar in schools


I'd like to know of any national (or smaller) educational systems in
which the normal curriculum (most probably in first-language classes)
includes the grammatical analysis of sentences. By `grammatical
analysis' I mean any of the following:

- the classification of words (as noun, verb, etc),
- the idenfification of grammatical functions (subject, object, etc),
- diagramming of sentence structure.

Also:
- At what age does it start?
- How successful is it?

I'll summarise back to the list if there's anything to summarise.

Dear Colleagues,

Does anyone know of computer corpora (if possible coded prosodically)
of spoken Spanish and/or German?

Please contact Mondorfstud-mailer.uni-marburg.de
