Synopsis: This authoritative introduction explores the four main non-transformational syntactic frameworks: Head-driven Phrase Structure Grammar, Lexical-Functional Grammar, Categorial Grammar, and Simpler Syntax. It also considers a range of issues that arise in connection with these approaches, including questions about processing and acquisition.

  • An authoritative introduction to the main alternatives to transformational grammar
  • Includes introductions to three long-established non-transformational syntactic frameworks: Head-driven Phrase Structure Grammar, Lexical-Functional Grammar, and Categorial Grammar, along with the recently developed Simpler Syntax
  • Brings together linguists who have developed and shaped these theories to illustrate the central properties of these frameworks and how they handle some of the main phenomena of syntax
  • Discusses a range of issues that arise in connection with non-transformational approaches, including processing and acquisition

From the Back Cover: This authoritative introduction explores the main non-transformational syntactic frameworks: Head-driven Phrase Structure Grammar, Lexical-Functional Grammar, Categorial Grammar, and Simpler Syntax. Chapters by linguiststs who have developed and shaped those theories illustrate the central properties of these four frameworks and how they handle some of the main phenomena of syntax.

Non-Transformational Syntax also explores a range of issues that arise in connection with these contemporary approaches, including questions about processing and acquisition. The chapters cover elementary principles and more advanced issues surrounding Head-driven Phrase Structure Grammar, the functional structure and interactions between morphology and syntax of Lexical-Functional Grammar, combinatory Categorial Grammar, and alternative minimalist visions of language. By shedding new light on alternate approaches to the phenomena of syntax, Non-Transformational Syntax represents an important contribution to the study of formal linguistics.
