Book Information

   

Title: Syntactic Nuts: Hard Cases, Syntactic Theory, and Language Acquisition
Written By: Peter W. Culicover
URL: http://www.oup-usa.org
Description:

How are native speakers of a language instinctively able to make precise linguistic judgements about marginal syntactic matters? What does this tell us about both the structure of language and our innate language ability as humans? These questions form the focus of Professor Culicover's in-depth study which will appeal to both graduate students and professionals within the fields of linguistic theory and cognitive science.
