Title: Syntax: A Minimalist Introduction
Written By: Andrew Radford

This textbook is a concise, readable introduction to current work in
syntactic theory, particularly to Chomsky's Minimalist program. It gives an
overview of theoretical concepts and descriptive devices. The discussion is
based on varieties of English (Modern Standard, Belfast, Shakespearean,
Jamaican Creole) and does not assume prior knowledge of syntax. There are
exercises and a glossary. It is an abridged version of Radford's major new
textbook Syntactic Theory and the Structure of English: A Minimalist
Approach (CUP, 1997).
