- The two-quarter sequence consisting of Linguistics 460-1 and 460-2 continues the development of students' analytical skills in syntax and sentence processing studies, and examines in detail the assumptions, goals and results of syntactic studies and syntactic parsing studies. 460-1 may be taken without taking 460-2.This course covers the foundational matters in the study of syntax namely formalist and functionalist approaches. Specifically, we discuss how island constraints are analyzed from the formalist and the functionalist perspectives and, see what is the difference between the two approaches and what are the motivations behind the two approaches.
