An Introduction to Syntax : Fundamentals of Syntactic Analysis Paperback / softback


This comprehensive introduction to syntax explains the basic concepts of syntax, and how the structures which are in place for describing the world can also be applied to a description of language structure.

Edith Moravcsik presents a detailed introduction to syntactic description, including linear order, selection, categories, meaning, sound form, variation and change.

The final selection provides a summary which looks at how we can explain syntax.

The book includes student-friendly features, such as chapter summaries, suggestions for further reading, exercises, and a glossary of terms.
