Abstract:

New Edition

This highly successful text has long been considered a standard
introduction to the practical analysis of English sentence structure. As in
previous editions, key concepts such as constituency, category and function
are carefully explained as they are introduced. Tree diagrams are used
throughout to help the reader visualise the hierarchical structure of
sentences. The final chapter sets the analysis in the context of generative
grammar.

In this third edition, Analysing Sentences has been thoroughly revised. It
has an attractive new layout, more examples, clearer explanations and
summaries of key points. A major change concerns the analysis of auxiliary
verbs, which has been revised to bring it more in line with current thinking.

Clear development from chapter to chapter, together with the author's
accessible style, make this book suitable for readers with no previous
experience of sentence analysis. A practical and reader-friendly text, it
includes many in-text, end-of-chapter and further exercises, making it
suitable for self-directed study as well as for taught courses.

Noel Burton-Roberts is Professor of English Language and Linguistics at
Newcastle University. He is the author of The Limits to Debate: a Revised
Theory of Semantic Presupposition (CUP, 1989), the editor of Phonological
Knowledge: Conceptual and Empirical Issues (OUP, 2000) and Pragmatics
(Palgrave, 2007), and the author of numerous articles on various aspects of
linguistics and the English language.
