The main goal of the course is adoption of syntactical norm of Croatian language. The basic unit is sentence, which is observed as a language and as a communication unit, and syntactic phenomenons are observed within the boundaries of study the discourse or text. Corpus selection from different text types allows students insights of stylogenetic elements at the level of syntax.
