Abstract:
			
Designed for students of linguistics at the advanced undergraduate or
graduate level, this volume is a comprehensive and accessible textbook
on syntactic analysis. Working within the "Lexical Functional Grammar"
(LFG) approach, it provides students with a framework for analyzing
and describing grammatical structure, using extensive examples from
European as well as non-European languages. While its primary focus is
on syntactic structure, it also covers aspects of meaning, function
and word-structure directly relevant to syntax. It is ideal for
one-semester courses in syntax and grammatical analysis.

Contents:
1. Three aspects of syntactic structure
2. Identifying constituents and categories
3. Passives, applicatives, and the 'dative shift'
4. Reflexives
5. Control
6. Pragmatic functions: topic and focus
7. Filler-gap dependencies and relativization
8. Causative constructions
9. Serial verbs and related constructions
10. 'Quirky case' and subjecthood
11. Syntactic ergativity.
