Title: Binding Theory
Written By: Daniel Büring
URL: http://www.cambridge.org/uk/catalogue/catalogue.asp?isbn=0521012228
Series Title: Cambridge Textbooks in Linguistics
Description:

Binding theory seeks to explain how different kinds of nominal expressions
such as names, noun phrases and pronouns have anaphoric relations amongst
one another, and how they come to have reference to things in the world.
This textbook provides a thorough and comprehensive introduction to modern
binding theory. Starting at a very basic level, it introduces the reader to
a huge variety of nominal and especially pronominal expressions from the
world’s languages, the ways they can be used, and current theorising about
their grammatical properties and their interpretation. Daniel Büring
discusses a wide range of cross-linguistic data and theoretical approaches,
and unlike in existing introductions, pairs the discussion of syntactic
facts with a detailed introduction to the semantic interpretation of
binding structures. Written in a clear and accessible style, and with
numerous exercises and examples, this textbook will be invaluable to
graduate and advanced undergraduate students of syntax and semantics.

*Starting at a basic level, and with numerous exercises, provides a
step-by-step introduction to the issues and theories

*Pays equal attention to syntax and semantics

*Uses examples from a wide variety of languages and linguistic constructions
