In this course we'll take a closer look at how some of the major descriptive grammars of English treat a number of central topics. We'll compare their motivations and argumentations for the way the data are treated. We'll also look at how a number of modern syntactic theories treat the same data, focussing on similarities and differences between theory and description. The course involves oral and written presentations and a written report of a project.
