Title: An Annotated Syntax Reader

Description:

An Annotated Syntax Reader presents a collection of excerpted foundational articles in the field of syntax -- readings that most clearly demonstrate the empirical and theoretical reasoning that form the foundation of current syntactic theory.

The papers are reduced to core excerpts, facilitating readers' access to observing seminal ideas at their inception and to understanding how and why they continue to inform current thinking.

Each article is accompanied by an introduction, which sets it in context and highlights its relation to current frameworks and ideas; and by a carefully chosen series of discussion questions, which invite readers to reflect on issues raised in the article and connect them to recent works in the syntax literature.

An Annotated Syntax Reader: Lasting Insights and Questions is an invitation for emerging scholars to consider the core issues in syntax with an appreciation for the intellectual history of today's ideas.
