Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This is an excellent textbook, written with the lucidity and care that we have come to expect from Bob Borsley's work. It would make an excellent text for an advanced undergraduate or introductory graduate sequence in syntactic theory and practice". Robert D. Levi, Ohio State University

"I recommend it to budding computational linguists in conjunctin with a practical course in HPSG grammar writing, and following one or two terms of relative theory-neutral syntax."Stephen Nightingale, University of Edinburgh
