LINGUIST 3: Glamour of Grammar

In this course, we will dispel many a mystery of English grammar, often presented as a dull and dreary subject in schools: we will see that the words ¿glamorous¿ and ¿grammar¿ come from the same root meaning ¿mysterious or occult¿ and we will ask: Why is there ¿stupidity¿ but not ¿smartity¿? Why can we ¿blacken¿ fish or ¿whiten¿ teeth, but not ¿pinken¿ or ¿greenen¿ anything? Who makes up new words anyway? How do we put words together into meaningful sentences? And how do we understand the nuances of English without much direct instruction? While the focus of this course is on English grammar, we will also see that other languages possess grammars that are based on the same principles and constraints.
