About the Authors
  • This abridged version of Radford's Minimalist Syntax: Exploring the Structure of English offers a concise, accessible introduction to current syntactic theory, drawing on the key concepts of Chomsky's Minimalist Program. Assuming little or no prior grammatical knowledge, it leads students through a range of topics in English syntax, beginning at an elementary level and progressing in stages towards more advanced material. An extensive glossary is included and each chapter contains a workbook section with "helpful hints", exercises, and model answers, suitable for class discussion and self-study.

    • Written in a very readable, concrete style, conveying complex syntactic concepts in a way that makes them more digestible for students
    • Workbook section contains 'helpful hints' designed to avoid errors commonly made by students
    • Contains a 40-page glossary of technical terminology
