ENG 310: Modern English Grammar

Dr. Cote 3 credits

          In this course, we will examine the structure of the English language from a modern, linguistic perspective. Students will discover what it means to be a native speaker of a language and will develop a conscious understanding of a wide range of particular unconscious grammatical concepts, principles, and rules that shape our everyday use of English. More generally, students should come away from this course with a better awareness of what grammar rules are, of where they come from, of how they can be determined, and of the extent to which they are or are not fixed and comprehensive.
