Summary: English Syntax is an authoritative, self-contained introduction to the subject for students who have had no prior coursework in syntactic theory. The detailed revisions throughout this new edition are aimed at increasing its clarity and usefulness.

In addition there are two new appendixes, the first sketching the relation of English syntax to the w ...show moreider field of generative syntactic theory, the second summarizing the basic syntactic structures discussed in the body of the text.
