Do you know why the word order in Dutch sentences is such a nightmare? It’s because Dutch has a fascinating syntactic structure! What is syntax anyway? And what is the theory of Universal Grammar? Why do Dutch toddlers say ‘koekje eten’ while their English peers say ‘eat cookie’? This workshop is dedicated to one of the most fascinating topics in modern linguistics – the structure of sentences. At the end you’ll be able to represent simple sentences in syntax tree diagrams yourself!
