Course objectives
The lecture builds on the morphological knowledge of the language with topics related to the composition of the language. The lecture provides a theoretical interpretation of questions further trained and deepened in the seminar to understand the structure of the French language. The aim of the course is to enable the students to understand the composition of the French sentence, its specifics, the function of the word types in the sentence members and the conformity of the subject with the hypothesis; to further analyze sentences in coordinate and subordinate relationships and to explain the word order in individual types of sentences.
