Title: Introduction to Syntax
Subtitle: Fundamentals of Syntactic Analysis
Written By: Edith A. Moravcsik
Description:

This comprehensive introduction presents the basic goals and tools of
syntactic analysis. The conceptual framework is theory-neutral, presenting
a scientific introduction to the field. The chapters in the first half of
the book present a detailed introduction to synchronic description. The
second half of the book examines variation and change, syntactic typology,
and language acquisition, and possible explanations from structural,
evolutionary and functional perspectives. The book includes
student-friendly features, such as chapter summaries, suggestions for
further reading, exercises, and a glossary of terms. This is essential
reading for undergraduate students, whether encountering syntax for the
first time, or studying it at a more advanced level.
