Title: Analyzing Syntax
Subtitle: A Lexical-Functional Approach
Written By: Paul R. Kroeger
URL: http://us.cambridge.org/titles/catalogue.asp?isbn=9780521016544
Description:

Analyzing Syntax: A Lexical-Functional Approach is a comprehensive and
accessible textbook on syntactic analysis, designed for students of
linguistics at advanced undergraduate or graduate level. Working within the
'Lexical Functional Grammar' (LFG) approach, it provides students with a
framework for analyzing and describing grammatical structure, using
extensive examples from both European and non-European languages. Topics
covered include: tests for constituency, passivization and other
relation-changing processes, reflexive pronouns, the control relation,
Topic and Focus, relative clauses and Wh-questions, causative
constructions, serial verbs, 'quirky case', and ergativity. As well as
building on what linguists have learned about language in general,
particular attention is paid to the unique features of individual
languages. While its primary focus is on syntactic structure, the book also
deals with aspects of meaning, function and word-structure that are
directly relevant to syntax. Clearly organised into topics, this textbook
is ideal for one-semester courses in syntax and grammatical analysis.
