The Syntax Handbook provides a reader-friendly review of the most frequently encountered syntactic terms that language interventionists use.

  • Each chapter includes:
  • An in-depth explanation of the term.
  • Child-development notes regarding the term.
  • Exercises (with answer keys) to review key vocabulary and to practice applying the information to language intervention practice.

Eight chapters present syntactic forms (nouns, pronouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, determiners, conjunctions, and prepositions) and four chapters discuss syntactic functions (sentence structure, phrases, clauses, and sentence types).
