Comparative Syntax and Semantics
Applicants should hold or expect to receive at least a 2.1 or equivalent in your 1st degree with pre-requisite study of both (generative) syntax and (formal) semantics. We would expect you to have taken at least 40 credits (20 ECTS) in the areas of syntax and semantics before embarking on this programme. If you're a non-native English speaking applicant you must provide evidence of your English language ability. You need to show enough fluency in all aspects of English (reading, writing, speaking and listening) to the required level of the course you're applying to.
Modules include: Issues at the syntax and semantics interface; comparative syntax and syntactic typology; advanced comparative syntactic or semantic typology; advanced topics at the interfaces of syntax; specific training and dissertation; research training seminar.
Autumn and Spring Terms: Each module will be assessed by written assignments, usually a 5,000 word essay or equivalent; dissertation of up to 15,000 words.
