Title: An Introduction to Syntactic Analysis and Theory

Description:

Over the past several decades, our knowledge of language and sentence structure has increased at a pace unparalleled in the history of linguistics. An Introduction to Syntactic Analysis and Theory provides a general introduction to our current understanding of the rules and principles that govern the syntax of natural languages.

Accessible to those with minimal knowledge of current syntactic research, it guides readers through syntactic and morphological structures in a progressive manner. To facilitate comprehension of basic principles and theories, useful 'Practice' boxes are included throughout the text, with more advanced concepts in syntactic theory also highlighted throughout. Comprehensive and authoritative, this introduction to syntactic theory takes the mystery out of one of the most crucial aspects of the workings of language -- the principles and processes behind the structure of sentences.
