Written By: Liliane Haegeman
Herman Wekker

Now available from Routledge in the US, A MODERN COURSE IN ENGLISH SYNTAX provides intermediate and advanced students of linguistics and English with a systematic account of the rules of English syntax, and acquaints them with the general methodology of syntactic description. It teaches them how to formulate syntactic arguments, and how to apply the right criteria and tests in the analysis of sentences. The technical terms and concepts needed for discussing English structures are presented step-by-step and all terms are clearly defined and amply illustrated as they are introduced. The text is interspersed throughout with exercises and practical assignments which students will find both useful and enjoyable
