Abstract:
			
'An ideal introduction to syntax.' - The Year's Work in English
 Studies

This textbook on syntax aims to give students a thorough grounding in
the basics of sentence structure, and at the same time strives to
acquaint them with the essentials of syntactic argument. This new
edition is completely revised with the chapter on X-bar syntax now
split in two to give greater prominence to clauses. It also contains
many new exercises, which are now graded in terms of level of
difficulty. Each chapter has a section on suggested further reading
material, and there is a bibliography and list of recommended
reference works.
