Title: The Cambridge Handbook of Generative Syntax
Edited By: Marcel den Dikken
URL: http://www.cambridge.org/us/academic/subjects/languages-linguistics/grammar-and-syntax/cambridge-handbook-generative-syntax?format=HB
Series Title: Cambridge Handbooks in Language and Linguistics
Description:

Syntax – the study of sentence structure – has been at the centre of generative linguistics from its inception and has developed rapidly and in various directions. The Cambridge Handbook of Generative Syntax provides a historical context for what is happening in the field of generative syntax today, a survey of the various generative approaches to syntactic structure available in the literature and an overview of the state of the art in the principal modules of the theory and the interfaces with semantics, phonology, information structure and sentence processing, as well as linguistic variation and language acquisition. This indispensable resource for advanced students, professional linguists (generative and non-generative alike) and scholars in related fields of inquiry presents a comprehensive survey of the field of generative syntactic research in all its variety, written by leading experts and providing a proper sense of the range of syntactic theories calling themselves generative.
