Cíle předmětu
The course labelled Selected chapters from syntax enhances the acquisition of linguistic knowledge and teaching competencies indispensable for the professional development of future teachers of English (viz Strategic Aim 1, Strategies 2030). The main goal is to give bachelor students an overall survey of English syntax with an emphasis on the differences between the sentence structure in the English language and the students´ mother tongue.
Výstupy z učení
The course will raise students’ awareness of similarities and differences between English and their mother tongue and thus enables them to identify potentially problematic areas for their future learners. The students are expected: 1. to understand the linguistic terms from the area of English syntax; 2. to be capable of forming and using correctly the simple, complex and compound sentence; 3. to recognize the differences between the structure of the English and Czech sentence; 4. to be aware of the various possible ways of expressing different syntactic relationships; 4. to know how to form different types of dependent clauses (included embedded clauses); 5. to be able to analyse texts written in English and explain them while using appropriate terms from the area of English syntax.
  • The lectures are related to the topics studied for the final exam in English syntax. Here follow some key terms from the topics that will be discussed in the lectures: 1. The simple sentence.
