This abridged version of Radford's Minimalist Syntax: Exploring the
Structure of English offers a concise, accessible introduction to
current syntactic theory, drawing on the key concepts of Chomsky's
Minimalist Program. Assuming little or no prior grammatical knowledge,
it leads students through a range of topics in English syntax,
beginning at an elementary level and progressing in stages towards
more advanced material. An extensive glossary is included and each
chapter contains a workbook section with "helpful hints", exercises,
and model answers, suitable for class discussion and self-study.

2. Categories and features
3. Syntactic structure and merger
4. Null constituents
5. Head movement
6. Wh-movement
