Course objectives
The aim of the course is to provide students with a survey of elementals of traditionally conceived Czech syntax following primary and secondary schools curricula. Elementary knowledge of syntax in accordance with Šmilauer’s concept is a good starting point not only for teaching, but also for practical acquiring of skills concerning punctuation. Completing the seminar will help students to use the acquired knowledge for practical purposes/teaching.
Learning outcomes
Having participated in the course, students will be able: - to summarize and describe basic principles of traditional Czech syntax; - to identify the individual sentence elements and to explain the composition of simple sentences as well as of complex and compound sentences; - to apply the acquired knowledge using punctuation in simple sentences as well as in complex and compound sentences; - to use the syntactic analysis practically, when teaching Czech.
