Do you want a deeper understanding of syntax and grammar?
Theories of Syntax: Concepts and Case Studies is an indispensable student companion. Starting with basic concepts of syntax, Kuiper and Nokes then delve deeper by explaining how we understand syntactic phenomena, and show us how to use different theoretical frameworks.
Theories of Syntax:
? Explores syntactic phenomena through a scientific lens
? Shows how syntactic models are shaped by theoretical frameworks
? Summarizes four theories of syntax: Systemic Functional Grammar, the Principles and Parameters Framework, Lexical Functional Grammar and Minimalism
? Illustrates seven sets of syntactic phenomena through case studies
With questions for revision, reflection and discussion in each chapter, this is an ideal book for students who want to further their studies.
