Book description:

The revised and expanded second edition of the Practical Guide to
Syntactic Analysis is an indispensable resource for students and
practitioners of syntax at all levels. The new edition adds a
reference guide to over 60 grammatical phenomena that every
syntactician should be familiar with.

Although not a textbook, it complements any course in syntax by
covering matters that textbooks and instructors do not normally
explain: the seductive metaphors of generative grammar; the character
of linguistic argumentation; theory-independent guidance for refining
and presenting analyses; and a capsule sketch of the evolution of
syntactic theory into its current directions. As a reference book, the
sections are relatively independent, and may be consulted in any
