Abstract

English Sentence Analysis: Language Workbook is a collection of exercises created with the aim of supporting the topics studied as a part of the English Syntax 1 course. This course is an introduction to English syntax for students at university level majoring in English language and literature. The course objectives are as follows: 1. To introduce students to syntactic theory and the wide scope of syntactic structures in English; 2. To provide students with rudimentary training in the skills and methods of English sentence analysis; 3. To orient students towards linguistic research. The main purpose of the course is to make students aware of different levels of analysis at the sentence, clause and phrase level. It first reviews some of the aspects of English grammar covered in previous courses and which are relevant for this course as well. As the verb is central to sentence formation, special attention is paid to the English verb and verb types. Then it moves to phrase level, clause level and sentence level. The course also reviews some of the previous terminology (word classes, subject, direct object, indirect object, etc.) and introduces students to new terminology (sentence constituents, noun phrase (NP), verb phrase (VP), etc., pre-modifiers, post-modifiers, etc.).
