9780134911199: Introduction to Generative-transformational Syntax

This is a representation of the modern approach to the study of syntax as pioneered by Noam Chomsky. The author demonstrates connections between studies of individual languages and universal grammar and compares competing transformational analyses of the four basic English syntax issues. The book also demonstrates the reasons for developing a more restricitve grammar and includes tree tables indicating key points in derivations of sample sentences.
