This work introduces general readers and scholars from other disciplines who wish to learn linguistic methodology to linguistic analysis of sentences and phrases within a Government and Binding framework. The issues discussed are nonetheless fundamental to all modern theories of syntax, and prepare readers to read articles written in a diversity of theories. Each chapter concludes with a brief summary of the picture of the theory developed thus far, and the multiple problem sets cover English, Japanese, and Romance languages. Comprehensive yet accessible, Syntax: Theory and Problems ennables readers to approach linguistic literature framed by the modern theories of today, and to approach the issues discussed in that literature with an open mind.

About the Author:

Donna Jo Napoli is at Swarthmore College.

Review:


"Well written and lively, with interesting problem sets. Professor Napoli has managed to make intelligible a difficult subject without talking down to students, or assuming vast prior knowledge."--Marilyn Silva, California State University, Hayward


"A splendid textbook. I especially like Ms Napoli's tone and her inductive approach....I also like the fact that [she] consistently presents one theory and does not try to be eclectic; her emphasis is on analysis and drawing conclusions. Great!"--R.M.R. Hall, Queens College, City University of New York


"She has filled a desperate need in the field--a book that is both readable and up-to-date. Readers have much to gain from Napoli's book, and for them, it will be interesting to see how the current formulation of the theory handles what had been problems for the earlier version."--Language

Book Description Oxford University Press Inc, United States, 1993. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This introduction to linguistic methodology - to doing linguistics - uses syntax as an example. It can thus be used as a primary text in introductory syntax courses. It is also, however, intended for scholars and students of other disciplines, such as psychology, philosophy, and computer science, who wish to acquire enough knowledge of linguists methods to be able to solve problems. Napoli s book is unique in employing an inductive approach to teaching this material. Students are presented with data from the start, and led to considerations of the data that enable them to develop a theory of grammar. The organization is designed to allow students access to the intricate theory of Government and Binding without intimidation or mindless memorization. Extensively classroom tested, each chapter of the text is enhanced by numerous problem sets (covering English, Japanese, and Romance languages), reflecting Napoli s conviction that in order to truly understand syntactic analysis, one must do syntactic analysis. The book also includes both a general bibliography and a bibliography for the problem sets. Seller Inventory # APC9780195079463
