Synopsis

This book introduces, analyzes and critiques the main areas of debate within the field of syntax. This book introduces the main areas of debate within the field of syntax. Jim Miller analyzes the major themes in syntactic research, paying attention to overlooked non-generative theories and the adoption of the same concepts across different models of grammar. The book analyzes the difference between spoken and written syntax, standard and non-standard syntax, grammar and usage, and addresses concerns such as grammatical prescription. Examples are drawn from a range of everyday examples extracted from corpus data, to present an analysis of how syntax is used in the real world. Comprehensive, accessible and challenging, this book is essential reading for students taking introductory courses in syntax and syntactic theory, both at undergraduate and postgraduate level. "Continuum Critical Introductions to Linguistics" are comprehensive introductions to core areas in linguistics. The introductions are original and approach the subject from unique and different perspectives. Using contemporary examples and analogies, these books seek to explain complicated issues in an accessible way.

The books prompt critical thinking about each core area, and are a radical departure from traditional, staid introductions to the subject. Written by key academics in each field who are not afraid to be controversial, each book will be essential reading for undergraduate students.
