Many introductory textbooks on syntax either concentrate on formal models or the syntactic structures of English alone. This introduction, now in its second edition, is distinctive in explaining basic concepts and their application to language work of any kind. Written to aid both student and teacher, it covers a range of topics, drawing on languages other than English. Chapters are supplemented with exercises and essay material is also provided. For this edition, several chapters have been revised or rewritten and additional chapter-end exercises provided. The book is designed for any student who requires a basic grounding in the subject, whether for the study of English, foreign languages, EFL, speech pathology, or on communication courses. It should also be useful reading for those undertaking advanced work in syntax.
