The Syntax of Hungarian

Katalin I. Kiss, Hungarian Academy of Sciences, Budapest, Hungary

Clearly written and comprehensive in scope, this is an essential guide
to syntax in the Hungarian language. It describes the key grammatical
features of the language, focusing on the phenomena that have proved
to be theoretically the most relevant and have attracted the most
attention. Katalin I. Kiss's textbook explores issues currently at the
center of theoretical debates, including the syntax and semantics of
focus, the analysis of quantifier scope, and negative concord.
