This authoritative introduction explores the main non-transformational syntactic frameworks: Head-driven Phrase Structure Grammar, Lexical-Functional Grammar, Categorial Grammar, and Simpler Syntax. The chapters by key linguists in the field cover elementary principles and more advanced issues and also explore a range of issues that arise in connection with these contemporary approaches, including questions about processing and acquisition. By shedding new light on alternate approaches to the phenomena of syntax, Non-Transformational Syntax represents an important contribution to the study of formal linguistics.
