We started this lecture by discussing our homework which was to identify as many syntactic facts in a text as possible.We found out that in German you have many cases. In English you don`t have that and the word order is therefore more rigid. In German you usually have the verb at the end . After that we revised Semantics.
Then, as it was the last session before christmas, Mr Gibbon introduced his familys` Plum Pudding recipe and we had to look for paradigmatic and syntagmatic relations in it. We also looked for taxonomies.
This lecture was really fun even if it was in a way higly linguistic.
