230296 Complement Clauses in English (S) (WiSe 2020/2021)

Inhalt, Kommentar

The status of complement clause constructions (CCCs) in English, that is, infinitives, gerunds, particles, and noun clauses, has been widely and somewhat controversially discussed. Often there is a discrepancy between what is theoretically proposed and what is empirically established. Assuming that a grammar of English should be composed in such a way as to reflect both approaches to this question, this class will set out to collect material in corpora of the students’ own design with an eye to finding explanatory patterns, possibly supported by (or themselves supposing) more theoretical hypotheses. Consequently, it is expected that the participants will select and examine areas within the field of complement constructions on the basis of the empirical material assembled in their corpora. This work may be oriented either toward the present-day language or toward an older stage of the language. Work can be undertaken individually or in small groups. Just what kind of contact may be possible remains to be seen.


Literature list will be supplied.
