ENG 424: Transformational Syntax (النحو التحويلي)

The course introduces students to Chomsky’s generative-transformational approach to syntax. Students are trained to analyze English sentences into different syntactic constituents. Moreover, students learn about the different transformational rules (such as passivization, auxiliary-fronting, wh-fronting, deletion, and raising) that are applicable to the deep structure of English sentences.
