Abstract:

Andrew Radford's latest textbook, Minimalist Syntax, provides a
concise, clear, and accessible introduction to current work in
syntactic theory, drawing on the key concepts of Chomsky's Minimalist
Program. Assuming little or no prior knowledge of syntactic theory,
Radford takes students through a diverse range of topics in English
syntax - such as categories and features, merger, null constituents,
movement, case, and split projections - and shows how the
'computational component' works within the minimalist
framework. Beginning at an elementary level, the book introduces
grammatical concepts and sets out the theoretical foundations of
Principles and Parameters and Universal Grammar, before progressing in
stages towards more complex phenomena. Each chapter contains a
workbook section, in which students are encouraged to make their own
analyses of English phrases and sentences through exercises, model
answers, and 'helpful hints'. There is also an extensive glossary of
terms.
