traditional grammatical description with perspectives gained from

presents useful theoretical concepts such as semantic roles, Case, and


1. Overview of the grammar; 
2. The noun phrase; 
3. The verb phrase;
4. VP-related functional categories; 
5. Subjects, topics and declarative constituent order; 
6. A'-movement and x^DDG movement through COMP.
