Beginning Syntax

    This is an elementary introduction to syntactic analysis. Assuming no prior knowledge of the subject whatsoever, it is intended for students who are encountering such analysis for the first time. For those embarking on a longer term study of syntax, this will be a valuable and quickly assimilated foundation course. For students who will need to use syntax as a basic descriptive tool -- such as trainee teachers, speech therapists or students of literacy style -- the book provides a framework for their analysis and practice in its use. The book begins by looking at the use of generalizations in describing sentence structure and the basis for word categories. It then moves through increasingly more complex constructions giving students plenty of opportunity by way of practical exercises to understand the basis of each analysis before moving further. The aim of the book is not to explore complex issues of argumentation. Its emphasis is on practical "hands on" analysis.
