This textbook on syntax gives students a thorough grounding in the
basics of sentence structure, and at the same time acquaints them with
the essentials of syntactic argumentation. This new edition is
completely revised, with the chapter on X-bar syntax now split in two
to give greater prominence to clauses. It also contains many new
exercises, which are now graded in terms of level of difficulty. Each
chapter has a section on suggested further reading material, and there
is a bibliography and list of recommended reference works.
