Overview

This is a guide to syntax in the Hungarian language. It describes the key grammatical features of the language, focussing on the phenomena that have proved to be theoretically the most relevant and that have attracted the most attention. The analysis of Hungarian in the generative framework since the late 1970s has helped to bring phenomena which are non-overt in the English language into the focus of syntactic research. As Katalin E. Kiss shows, its results have been built into the hypotheses that currently make up Universal Grammar. The textbook explores issues currently at the center of theoretical debates, including the syntax and semantics of focus, the analysis of quantifier scope, and negative concord. This useful guide will be welcomed by students and researchers working on syntax and those interested in Finno-Ugric languages.

Booknews
Primarily adhering to the basic outline of Hungarian sentence structure that she proposed in the late 1970s, based on a generative syntactic theory, Kiss (linguistics, Hungarian Academy of Sciences) also incorporates recent research from Hungary and abroad to set out the syntax of the Finno-Ugric language. Her account is broader and more recent than the other similar work. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
