This course builds on the techniques learned in AL4410a for analyzing and describing the morphology and syntax of any language. Students in this course continue working through morphological and syntactic exercises from a variety of languages; however, the exercises are more difficult, and the issues addressed are more complex. Students learn how to identify and describe allomorphy, different types of morphology, valence-changing constructions, verbless clauses, questions, commands, negation, and subordinate clauses. This course serves as a prerequisite for several graduate linguistics courses.
