Analyzing Grammar is a clear introductory textbook on grammatical analysis,
designed for students beginning to study the discipline. Covering both
syntax (the structure of phrases and sentences) and morphology (the
structure of words), it equips them with the tools and methods needed to
analyze grammatical patterns in any language. Students are shown how to
use standard notational devices such as phrase structure trees and
word-formation rules, as well as prose descriptions. Emphasis is placed on
comparing the different grammatical systems of the world's languages, and
students are encouraged to practice the analyses through a diverse range of
problem sets and exercises. Topics covered include word order,
constituency, case, agreement, tense, gender, pronoun systems, inflection,
derivation, argument structure and grammatical relations, and a useful
glossary provides a clear explanation of each term. Accessibly written and
comprehensive, Analyzing Grammar is set to become a key text for all
courses in grammatical analysis.
