Cursusdoelen
Participants will acquire an understanding of the architecture of linguistic grammar, the interplay of different grammar-internal modules (lexicon-syntax-semantics) as well as the interplay between language as a cognitive module with other cognitive domains.. The participants will gain an overall understanding of the major issues at the relevant interface, develop the ability to identify conceptual, theoretical, and empirical issues that different theories raise, analyze and evaluate existing solutions, and ultimately generate their own hypotheses and give their own theoretical or empirical contribution. They will also develop skills of academic presentation and writing. The course content is related to the issues explored in other courses within the Syntax track, but also those  in the Semantics and Pragmatics, Psycholinguistics-Neurolinguistics, and Language Acquisition tracks. Outside the subdomains of linguistics, we will focus on the cross-pollination between linguistics and clinical psychology and probe into the linguistic markers of psychological and psychopathological processes..In choosing their topics for their final paper, the students are strongly encouraged to integrate and utilize the factual, conceptual and procedural knowledge they have gained in the foundational courses, and other track courses.
Inhoud
The notion ‘interface’ is central in grammatical theory and in linguistic practice: works on the lexicon-syntax, syntax-semantics, syntax-phonology, and syntax-morphology interface have led to a deeper understanding of different linguistic phenomena and of the architecture of the linguistic component of the mind/brain. The main focus here is on the lexicon-syntax interface. Whereas the rapidity of language acquisition supports the shared assumption that there is a correlation between the meaning (lexical properties of predicates) and the syntactic structure in which they are realized, researchers differ with respect to the nature of the correlation. We will analyze and evaluate some of the representative approaches with respect to issues of alternations, linking, and the nature of the lexicon.
