|E-courses||Valo4048: Modern Standard Latvian Morphology|
|Course annotation||The course deals with the grammatical structure of Latvian, with its elements and peculiarities. Various grammatical categories, their functions and means of expression in Latvian are discussed. Word-classes are analysed. The word-classes are analysed as lexical, grammatical and syntactic parts of language. The theory of morphemics and word-building is incorporated in the course as well. Thus the course of morphology provides the students with rich theoretical background and consolidates their knowledge of Latvian grammar.
|Results||On successful completion of the course the students:
1) have gained knowlegde of the morphological system of Latvian – morphemic structure, word-formation and inflections;
2) are able to define the parts of speech and identify their borderline cases, the declinations of nouns and the conjugations of verbs;
3) have masterd semantics and syntactic functions of the parts of speech.
