CASE STUDY: All About Syntax

This module gives students the opportunity to broaden and deepen their knowledge of syntax (the study of sentence structure), whilst also exploring how work in syntax fits into and supports research in other sub-disciplines of linguistics – especially language acquisition. Students develop and pursue their own interests, though independent research and study, with the support and guidance of the module convenor. The module also gives students the opportunity to practise and enhance their skills in time and project management; communicating to a range of audiences; working in a team and identifying the strengths and weaknesses of their team members; understanding how other people learn; and self-reflection as a means of improving their own learning and performance.

Dr Gary Wood

The convenor of All About Syntax, Dr Gary Wood, discusses the impact of working alongside the community and broadening the communicative channels of the University. This module develops many enterprise skills, and Gary discusses how these can be embedded successfully within the academic study of linguistics.
