Designed for students of linguistics at the advanced undergraduate or graduate level, this volume is a comprehensive and accessible textbook on syntactic analysis. Working within the "Lexical Functional Grammar" (LFG) approach, it provides students with a framework for analyzing and describing grammatical structure, using extensive examples from European as well as non-European languages. While its primary focus is on syntactic structure, it also covers aspects of meaning, function and word-structure directly relevant to syntax. It is ideal for one-semester courses in syntax and grammatical analysis.Contents1. Three aspects of syntactic structure2. Identifying constituents and categories3. Passives, applicatives, and the 'dative shift'4. Reflexives5. Control6. Pragmatic functions: topic and focus7. Filler-gap dependencies and relativization8. Causative constructions9.
