Book Cover
The Handbook of Contemporary Syntactic Theory

This Handbook provides a comprehensive view of the current issues in contemporary syntactic theory.

Written by an international assembly of leading specialists in the field, the 23 original articles in this Handbook serve as a comprehensive and useful reference for various areas of grammar. The chapters include analyses of non-configurational languages, a crosslinguistic comparison of important grammatical features that interface with semantics, discussions from the perspective of learnability theory, a discussion of thematic relations, and comparisons of derivational and representational approaches to grammar.

These cutting-edge articles, combined with the editors' informative introduction and an extensive bibliography, grant readers the greatest access to the field of natural language syntax today.
