Book Information

   

Title: The Grammar of Q
Subtitle: Q-Particles, Wh-Movement, and Pied-Piping
Written By: Seth Alfred Cable
URL: http://www.us.oup.com/us/catalog/general/subject/Linguistics/SyntaxMorphology/?view=usa&ci=978019539
Series Title: Oxford Studies in Comparative Syntax
Description:

"The Grammar of Q" puts forth a novel syntactic and semantic analysis of wh-
questions, one that is based upon in-depth study of the Tlingit language, an
endangered and under-documented language of North America. A major
consequence of this new approach is that the phenomenon classically dubbed
"pied-piping" does not actually exist.
