Summary

The study of syntax over the last half century has seen a remarkable expansion of the boundaries of human knowledge about the structure of natural language. The Routledge Handbook of Syntax presents a comprehensive survey of the major theoretical and empirical advances in the dynamically evolving field of syntax from a variety of perspectives, both within the dominant generative paradigm and between syntacticians working within generative grammar and those working in functionalist and related approaches.

The Handbook covers key issues within the field that include:

• core areas of syntactic empirical investigation,

• contemporary approaches to syntactic theory,

• interfaces of syntax with other components of the human language system,

• experimental and computational approaches to syntax.

Bringing together renowned linguistic scientists and cutting-edge scholars from across the discipline and providing a balanced yet comprehensive overview of the field, The Routledge Handbook of Syntax is essential reading for researchers and postgraduate students working in syntactic theory.
