Subject: New and Recent Titles in Syntax and Morphology from Oxford UP

Susan Braidi, West Virginia University
The issue of syntactic development is one of the most central to both
linguistics and applied linguistics. Assuming no detailed background
knowledge of linguistics, this book is an introduction to the acquisition of
syntax in a second language. The text builds a coherent picture of
second language grammatical development by showing the interactions
between the syntactic, processing, and functional/discourse
approaches, and looks at how and why these different approaches give
different results.

(Understanding Language)
This text provides a complete introduction to the syntax of human
languages. Assuming no prior knowledge of linguistics, the book
discusses and illustrates all of the major terms and concepts essential to
the study of sentence structure. While drawing initial illustrations
primarily from English, the book presents extensive additional material
from several dozen other languages. Written in an accessible style with
many examples and interactive exercises, this book is the perfect choice
for anyone approaching this subject for the first time.
