Review:

"From first–hand experience, Carnie′s book provides a highly readable and engaging initiation into the mindset and preoccupations of current syntactic theory. It is useful in tying the cognitive implications and background of current Chomskyan work together with the increasing cross–linguistic emphasis in syntax. The problem sets alone were extremely appreciated by my undergraduates." Mark Baltin, New York University

"This book is a perfect example of how sophisticated syntactic concepts can be presented in a genuinely reader–friendly way. The syntax student is led carefully through argumentation to current syntactic theory and at the end has a clear understanding not only of the whats of syntax but also the whys." Lisa deMena Travis, McGill University

"The book is written in a reader–friendly way, and guides students to grasp complicated syntactic concepts and analyses." The Linguist List
