Cíle předmětu
This course enhances the acquisition of linguistic knowledge and teaching competencies indispensable for the professional development of future teachers of English, in particular communication and interpersonal skills, flexibility and adaptability (viz Strategic Aim 1, Strategies 2030). The goal is to master modality including the two types of modality, intrinsic and extrinsic modality, and all kinds of non-finite verb forms, infinitives, gerunds and participles. Students are supposed to become acquainted with the analysis of the simple sentence, especially in contrast to their mother tongue, the Czech language. They also study some cohesive means, notably substitution and ellipsis. An important part of the course is the mastery of the four basic sentence types and their corresponding discourse functions. Finally, students are expected to master the semantics and grammar of adverbials.
Výstupy z učení
This 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. More specifically they are expected: 1. to understand linguistic terms from the area of syntax and be able to explain them on concrete examples; 2. to understand the structure of the simple sentence and be able to analyze it; 3. to know how to express modality and condensation in the English sentence; 4. to be able to identify concrete syntactic features in the text and describe them while using appropriate linguistic terms.
  • The simple sentence. Sentence elements and types of phrases. Two types of grammatical notation: tree diagrams and bracketing. The semantics and grammar of adverbials (four criteria for their classification). Four grammatical functions of adverbials (adjuncts, subjuncts, disjuncts and conjuncts). Sentence types and discourse functions. Pro-forms and ellipsis. Introduction to modal verbs. Two kinds of modality. Ability, permission, and possibility. Past activity, habit, refusal, etc. Expectation, assumption, and conclusion. Obligation, absence of obligation. Duty and arrangement, with non-fulfilment. Use of should for suggestions, opinions, feelings, etc. The infinitive. Types of infinitive. The -ing form as a gerund. Verbs taking a full infinitive or -ing (gerund).

Výukové metody
Mode of teaching: seminar The methods used in classes are mainly presentations of new and/or problematic grammatical issues by the teacher, followed by class discussions and questions from students, and various types of exercises from compulsory and recommended textbooks. As for homework, students are supposed to study in advance relevant chapters from their textbooks and prepare translations of sentences from Czech into English. Apart from that, students have to do various on-line tasks including quizzes designed particularly for their course.
Metody hodnocení
Students have to write one test during the term and one final test and translation at the end of the course to get a credit from Seminar to syntax A. They are expected to attend classes on a regular basis and score at least 70 per cent with all the tests. In case of more than three absences they will be tested also orally, i.e. they will be asked some theoretical questions by their teacher or prepare some syntax activities. In case of online teaching, the mid-term as well as final tests will be organized also online.
