Review:

"The framework of Dynamic Syntax is the most exciting newdevelopment in syntactic theory to emerge in recent years. As wellas providing a full introduction to the framework, this bookprovides in-depth discussions of relative clause constructions, wh questions and crossover phenomena in a range of languagesincluding English, Arabic and Japanese. This book is likely tobecome a classic and will be of interest to all those interested inthe syntactic modelling of natural languages." Ronnie Cann, University of Edinburgh

"This is an important book and ... the ideas presented in itdeserve the close attention of syntacticians and semanticists."Linguist List

From the Back Cover:

This ground-breaking volume sets out an original model of thedynamics of language processing, which can be used to explain thestructural properties of language in a simple and elegant way. Themodel is introduced both informally and formally, and is applied toa range of languages.

Alongside formal definitions, the authors use step-by-stepderivations and detailed lexical definitions to illustrate this newform of syntactic analysis and to show how the model can be appliedto a broad range of languages. In this way, the reader gets a senseof the rich potential the framework provides for generalapplication to linguistic analysis.

In bringing together explanations of knowledge of language, andthe way language is used in parsing, the book challenges basicassumptions of linguistic theory, and is an essential read foranyone interested in what it means to know a language.
