Syntax : Basic Concepts and Applications, Hardback Book


Syntax: Basic Concepts and Applications provides a systematic introduction to core topics in syntax, focusing on how the basic concepts apply in the analysis of sentences.

Assuming no background in linguistic analysis, the book gives students a working knowledge of syntactic analysis from a minimalist perspective.

Step by step it explains the fundamentals of phrase structure, movement and deletion.

Well-placed exercises throughout reinforce and extend the concepts and analyses presented in the text, allowing readers to gain understanding of progressively complex issues at a comfortable pace.

Much of the data comes from English, but crucial examples are also drawn from a range of other languages, including Russian, Chinese, Japanese, French, Italian, Spanish, Irish, Welsh and Greek.
