Abstract:

Analysing English Sentences provides a concise and clear introduction to
current work in syntactic theory, drawing on the key concepts of Chomsky's
Minimalist Program. Assuming little or no prior knowledge of syntax or
minimalism, Radford outlines the core concepts and leading ideas and how
they can be used to describe various aspects of the syntax of English. A
diverse range of topics is covered, including syntactic structure, null
constituents, head movement, case and agreement and split projections.
Using Radford's trademark approach and writing style, the book is intensive
and progressive in nature, introducing grammatical concepts and
working in stages towards more complex phenomena.

2. Structure;
3. Null constituents;
