the "rules" of a language

In the News

  • the arrangement of elements in phrases and sentences
    • Cogito ergo sum.

  • English has a fairly ridged structure
    • “John and Mary went to the movies.”
    • * “John went to the movies to Mary and.”

  • When a language is more dependent on morphology, syntax may relax
    • e.g., Canis ursum videt ("the dog sees the bear") can be in any position
