"Deeply informed, lucid, and careful, this revision of the outstanding original carries the student from core concepts to topics at the borders of inquiry. A most valuable contribution."
Noam Chomsky, Institute Professor (retired), Department of Linguistics and Philosophy, MIT "

This truly excellent textbook competently guides students to understand not just the basics of generative syntax but also richness of universals and parametric variation in a clear and thoughtprovoking way."
Ken Hiraiwa, Department of English, Meiji Gakuin University

Andrew Carnie's bestselling textbook on syntax has guided thousands of students through the discipline of theoretical syntax; its popularity is due to its combination of straightforward language, comprehensive coverage, and numerous exercises. In this third edition, new topics are added, discussions are updated, additional exercises are included, and online resources are enhanced.

Authoritative coverage spans phrase structure, the lexicon, Case theory, movement, covert movement, locality conditions, VP shells, and control. New chapters cover auxiliaries, ellipsis, and non-configurational languages. For the first time, an optional companion Workbook is also available; the table of contents correlates with the textbook and is designed to help offer students practice at analyzing syntactic structure. The enhanced online resources for both instructors and students, now available at www.wiley.com/go/carnie, include online-only chapters on HPSG and LFG, and offer tried and tested resources from the previous editions.

Comprehensive, engaging, and ideally structured for study, this third edition of Syntax is the most robust introduction to the major issues in generative syntactic theory available today.
