Course Description
English is probably the most widely used language in the world and a language so widely distributed naturally has many dialects and varieties. While some of these dialects/varieties may be viewed as more prestigious than others in some societies, when considered objectively in terms of grammar, they tend to be on a par with the others as their grammatical rules are equally precise, pure, or logical. Nonetheless, this course does not try to describe all the different dialects/varieties of English there are. It focusses on the grammar of Standard English because it is most widely known and is relatively stable and uniform.



One goal in this course is to help you to learn about English grammar as it is actually used rather than as it should be used; the latter typically takes the form of usage manuals or school textbooks. Thus, the course is ‘descriptive’ (as opposed to ‘prescriptive’) in its approach, presenting grammar rules that are based on facts about how people speak and write. The rules are supposed to reflect the language the way it is. The course will clarify English sentence structure and provide you with a solid foundation for more advanced study.



Insofar as time permits, this course will briefly present a cognitive approach to grammar as proposed in the model of Cognitive Grammar developed by Ronald Langacker. Essentially, it seeks to give students a deeper insight into the nature of grammar as a human experience and into the cognitive principles that motivate its structure, as opposed to the traditional approach to grammar that focusses on forms, structures and rules.
