3. Course contents *

According to traditional conceptions of language, grammar consists (i) of a lexicon, roughly defined as a list of words with their grammatical properties and their meaning, and (ii) a series of rules determining how words can be combined into into grammatically well formed and meaningful sentences. In this course we will verify to what extent this conception of grammar can describe and explain the structure of French sentences.
