Summary

Syntactic Theory emphasises theory-building and hypothesis-testing as it develops and motivates Chomsky's Principles and Parameters framework. The initial chapters guide the student through introductory topics such as X'-Theory, Transformations and elementary Binding Theory. For students needing a bridge to the primary literature later chapters cover more advanced topics which form the core empirical background to Chomsky's Minimalist Program. In-text exercises engage the student at every stage of the heory-development process and every chapter concludes with an 'Open Issue' to encourage further exploration of the chapter's topic.
