About the Authors
  • Designed for students of linguistics at the advanced undergraduate or graduate level, this volume is a comprehensive and accessible textbook on syntactic analysis. Working within the "Lexical Functional Grammar" (LFG) approach, it provides students with a framework for analyzing and describing grammatical structure, using extensive examples from European as well as non-European languages. While its primary focus is on syntactic structure, it also covers aspects of meaning, function and word-structure directly relevant to syntax. It is ideal for one-semester courses in syntax and grammatical analysis.

    • Includes a wide range of non-European language data, and deals with 'exotic' constructions such as serial verbs, 'quirky case' and syntactic ergativity
    • Written within the LFG framework, a non-transformational approach to generative syntax
    • Blend of structural analysis and syntactic typology
