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.

Paul R. Kroeger is Associate Professor and Head of the Department of Linguistics at the Graduate Institute of Applied Linguistics, Dallas.

Three aspects of syntactic structure
Identifying constituents and categories
Passives, applicatives, and the 'dative shift'
Reflexives
Control
Pragmatic functions: topic and focus
Filler-gap dependencies and relativization
Causative constructions
Serial verbs and related constructions
'Quirky case' and subjecthood
Syntactic ergativity
