Abstract: This paper addresses some linguistic, mainly syntactic, phenomena in two typologically different languages (English and Slovak). A cross-linguistic analysis (English –Slovak) attempts to demonstrate similarities and differences between the two. The analysis of selected linguistic phenomena, which focusses on syntactic and semantic aspects, may contribute to their better comprehension by university students studying English and Slovak linguistics.
Keywords: foreign language education, a cross-linguistic analysis, typologically different languages, syntactic analysis, semantic analysis
