Andrew Radford's new textbook is principally for students with little or no background in syntax who need a lively and up-to-date introduction to contemporary work on transformational grammar.

It covers four main topics - the goals of linguistic theory, syntactic structure, the nature and role of the lexicon, and the function of transformations and the principles governing their application. The framework takes into account the major works such as Chomsky's Knowledge of Language and Barriers written since the publication of Radford's widely acclaimed Transformational Syntax in Not only does the present book use a more recent theoretical framework, but at the descriptive level it covers a wider range of constructions and rules than its predecessor.

Andrew Radford is well known for his effective pedagogical approach, and in this book even more care has been devoted to providing a sympathetic and non-technical introduction to the field. At the end of each chapter are exercises which reinforce the text, enable students to apply the various concepts, etc. The book also has a detailed bibliographical background section and an extensive bibliography which will be a useful source of reference to the primary literature.

Although intended principally as a coursebook for students of syntax or English grammar, Transformational Grammar will be invaluable to any reader who needs a straightforward and comprehensive introduction to the latest developments in this field.

Transformational Grammar by Andrew Radford

Andrew Radford is a British linguist known for his work in syntax and child language acquisition. His first important contribution to the field was a book on Italian syntax. He has since published several books on syntax within the framework of generative grammar and the Minimalist Program of Noam Chomsky , a number of which have appeared in the series Cambridge Textbooks in Linguistics. In the s, Radford was a pioneer of the maturation-based structure building model of child language, and the acquisition of functional categories in early child English within the Principles and Parameters framework, [3] [4] in which children are seen as gradually building up more and more complex structures, with lexical categories like noun and verb being acquired before functional- syntactic categories like determiner and complementiser : this research resulted in the publication of a monograph on Syntactic Theory and the Acquisition of English Syntax in , and numerous articles on the acquisition of syntax by monolingual, bilingual and language-disordered children. Since , Radford has researched the syntax of colloquial English , using data recorded from unscripted radio and TV broadcasts. He produced a research monograph on this, and a number of articles, and is preparing a follow-up research monograph on the syntax of relative clauses in colloquial English. In his book, Syntactic Theory and the Acquisition of English Syntax , [8] Radford summarizes the state of a maturation hypothesis for child language acquisition.
