This abridged version of Radford's Minimalist Syntax: Exploring the
Structure of English offers a concise, accessible introduction to current
syntactic theory, drawing on the key concepts of Chomsky's Minimalist
Program. Assuming little or no prior grammatical knowledge, it leads
students through a range of topics in English syntax, beginning at an
elementary level and progressing in stages towards more advanced material.
An extensive glossary is included and each chapter contains a workbook
section with "helpful hints", exercises, and model answers, suitable for
class discussion and self-study.
