Title: Syntactic Theory: A Unified Approach
Written By: Robert D. Borsley
Description:

Syntactic theory is central to the study of language. This innovative book introduces the ideas that underlie most approaches to syntax and shows how they have been developed within two broad frameworks: Government Binding Theory and Phrase Structure Grammar. Thoroughly updated in the light of major recent developments, this second edition includes expanded explanations of the main characteristics of the two theories, summaries of the main features, exercises reinforcing key points, and suggestions for further investigation.
