The exercise bookofferscomplex sentenceprocessingwith respect to both morphological and syntactic phenomena, i.e. the exercises allow students of basic and secondary schools to practice classifyingpartsof speechandparticularmor- phologicalcategoriesofwordsandinthepars- ing of sentences and classifying the syntactic functions of words.
