This is an introduction to the structure of sentences in human
languages. It assumes no prior knowledge of linguistic theory and
little of elementary grammar. It will suit students coming to
syntactic theory for the first time either as graduates or
undergraduates. It will also be useful for those in fields such as
computational science,artificial intelligence, or cognitive psychology
who need a sound knowledge of current syntactic theory.

Exercises are provided at key points through the book. The book may be
used as part of a course or for self-tuition. It offers a sound basis
for advanced work in linguistics and related fields.


*Concise and accessible introduction to core syntax requiring no prior

*Provides a fully up to date theoretical framework for the study of
syntax within the Chomskyan Minimalist mode

*Emphasis on structure of syntactic arguments and on the interaction

arguments are developed
