Coordination by noura al nemari

  1. 1. SYNTAX LANE 334 <br />Instructor:<br />Dr. ShadiaBanjar<br />Presented by:<br />NouraA. Al-Nemari<br />
  2. 2. Coordination<br />
  3. 3. Coordination:<br />It is a process of joining many parts together by using coordinator such as: and, but, and or.<br />These parts have to carry equal importance and equal weight.<br />Coordinating conjunctions connect words, phrases, or clauses.<br />
  4. 4. Linking many clauses:<br />We can link as many clauses together without making any one subordinate to another.<br />Main clause + COORD + Main clause<br />e.g. I like tea and Sue likes tea.<br />The result of the coordination is a compound sentence. <br />
  5. 5. S1<br />ScoordS<br /> NP VP NP VP<br />PRO Vgp NP N Vgp NP<br /> [trans ] [ trans]<br /> AUX V N AUX V N <br /> TENSE TENSE<br /> I ( pres) like tea and Sue ( pres) likes tea<br /> S P O coord S P O <br />
  6. 6. Linking many phrases:<br />It is possible to coordinate phrases together as well as clauses.<br />e.g. The cat and the dog are good friends.<br /> NP + COORD + NP<br />
  7. 7. S<br /> NP VP<br />NPcoordNPVgp NP<br />[intens] <br />DET N DET N AUX V AdjP N<br /> TENSE A<br /> The cat and the dog( pres) are good friends <br /> S P sC<br />
  8. 8. We can use the singular or plural pronoun as a test to substitute the subject NP.<br /> e.g. The cat and the dog are good friends.<br /> They<br />{ }<br />
  9. 9. When noun phrases are pre-modified by adjective phrases the position is ambiguous. <br />So we need to use the tree diagrams to illustrate the ambiguity. <br />e.g. Very old womenandmen love cakes. <br />
