Book Information


Title: An Introduction to English Sentence Structure
Written By: Andrew Radford

This outstanding resource for students offers a step-by-step, practical
introduction to English syntax and syntactic principles, as developed by
Chomsky over the past 15 years. Assuming little or no prior background in
syntax, Andrew Radford outlines the core concepts and how they can be used
to describe various aspects of English sentence structure. This is an
abridged version of Radford’s major new textbook Analyzing English
Sentences (also published by Cambridge University Press), and will be
welcomed as a handy introduction to current syntactic theory.
