DAVID ADGER CORE SYNTAX PDF

Oxford Core Linguistics Description This is an introduction to the structure of sentences in human languages. It assumes no prior knowledge of linguistic theory and little of elementary grammar. It will suit students coming to syntactic theory for the first time either as graduates or undergraduates. It will also be useful for those in fields such as computational science, artificial intelligence, or cognitive psychology who need a sound knowledge of current syntactic theory. Sentences in human languages are not just collections of random sounds with associated meanings. They involve a host of intriguing phenomena including constraints on possible word orders and the establishment of relationships between words and phrases which affect both phonological form and meaning.

Oxford Core Linguistics Description This is an introduction to the structure of sentences in human languages. It assumes no prior knowledge of linguistic theory and little of elementary grammar. It will suit students coming to syntactic theory for the first time either as graduates or undergraduates. It will also be useful for those in fields such as computational science, artificial intelligence, or cognitive psychology who need a sound knowledge of current syntactic theory.

Sentences in human languages are not just collections of random sounds with associated meanings. They involve a host of intriguing phenomena including constraints on possible word orders and the establishment of relationships between words and phrases which affect both phonological form and meaning. David Adger leads the reader in easy stages through the development of an approach which explains how these phenomena work. These ideas are explained in clear, simple terms, backed up with examples and diagrams.

The book emphasizes the importance of cross-linguistic evidence in the development of syntactic arguments. Above all it demonstrates the value of building a consistent theoretical system via repeated processes of hypothesis testing and evaluation.

Exercises are provided at key points through the book. The book may be used as part of a course or for self-tuition. It offers a sound basis for advanced work in linguistics and related fields.

Core Syntax — David Adger — Oxford University Press This fast-track introduction to syntax assumes no adget knowledge of linguistic theory. Another very positive characteristic is the approach to crosslinguistic variation, which is given consistently in terms of features Overall I would say that the book has accomplished these aims admirably. Something I found particularly good was ccore way examples are worked through in detail, with each instance of feature checking specified.

Core Syntax

Each chapter includes excellent problem sets and a list of further readings The author takes a lot of time to illustrate each derivation step by step, thus helping students to see the workings of a formal syntactic system. Another very positive characteristic is the approach to crosslinguistic variation, which is given consistently in terms of features I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who wants a text that presents minimalist syntax in a clear way and with data from a vast array of languages. Firstly, the fact that syntax should be carried out using a consistent set of theoretical assumptions. Finally, the methodology of theory formation is emphasised as well.
