Marcel den Dikken, ed.

The Cambridge Handbook of Generative Syntax
(Cambridge University Press, 2013)
Syntax has been at the center of generative linguistics from its inception and has developed rapidly and in various directions. This handbook provides a historical context for what is happening in the field of generative syntax today; a survey of the various generative approaches to syntactic structure available in the literature; and an overview of the state of the art in theory and in the interfaces with semantics, phonology, information structure, and sentence processing, as well as linguistic variation and language acquisition. This resource is valuable for advanced students, professional linguists (generative and nongenerative alike), and scholars in related fields of inquiry. Marcel den Dikken is professor of linguistics at the Graduate Center.
