Introducing a lucid and succinct analysis of the main syntactic
properties of Welsh, Roberts puts forward a general analysis of clause
structure, agreement, case-marking and other phenomena. He also
provides us with a comparative analysis of these phenomena in relation
to other Celtic languages, Germanic and Romance languages, and
English. The study of P&P theory is unprecedented, and this monograph
will be a strong addition to the Oxford Studies in Comparative Syntax
