Cíle předmětu
The course Syntax B 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 main goal is to master characteristic features of English syntax, mainly in comparison with the structure of the students´ mother tongue. The differences between the simple sentence, compound sentence and complex sentence will be studied, including all types of dependent clauses and complex condensation.
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. The students are expected: 1. to understand linguistic terms from the area of syntax and to be able to explain them on concrete examples; 2. to understand the structure of the compound and complex sentence in comparison with the structure of the simple sentence, especially when compared to the structure of the sentence in the Czech language; 3. to know the language means for the expression of a variety of relations realized by different types of subordinate clauses, namely nominal, adverbial, relative and comparative clauses; 4. to be capable of identifying concrete, even more complex, syntactic structures in the written text and to know how to explain and describe them while using adequate linguistic terms.
