Written By: Kim Sauter
Marjolijn H. Verspoor
Description:

English Sentence Analysis: An introductory course is designed as a 10-week course for students of English Language and Literature, Linguistics, or other language related fields. In 10 weeks the student will be proficient in English analysis at sentence, clause and phrase level and have a solid understanding of the traditional terms and concepts of English syntax. This introduction prepares for practical courses in grammar and writing skills and for theoretical courses in syntactic argumentation.


The package consists of a Course Book with 8 Chapters and a CD-Rom with the Practice Program.

The Course Book shows
