Course Description

This course is designed to integrate the study of the structure of English with work on grammar and mechanics. The course incorporates traditional, structural, and transformational theories of grammar so as to help students to better understand their language intuitions and instincts through a variety of ways of understanding and explaining English grammar and usage. The course avoids role learning and engages students in analytical thinking; it encourages learning concepts through prototypical cases and applying these cases to the analysis of the usual and exceptional. The course emphasizes an understanding sentence patterns, word forms and functions, style and meaning, grammatical terminology, and usage and correctness. It is strongly recommended that Education and Communication majors take ENGL2540(The Study of Language) before taking this course. 3 credits

Prerequisites: COSK2220 or COSK2225 and any ELIT course
