Sentence structure - highlight

Sentence structure - highlight

This short and minimal talk was held in the introduction to linguistics course conducted by Bernd Meyer.

As a relatively big team, we were tasked with identifying a highlight and a "lowlight" concerning the chapter on sentence structure in the book we used for the course, as well as the corresponding course session.

As the lowlight we presented a particularly vague and misleading sentence in the book, and as the highlight we showed an excerpt about sentence structure from the famous essay "The Awful German Language" by Mark Twain.

This talk was meant to last five minutes at most, which is why there are so few slides and so little content.
