Adopting the objectives of Chomsky's Principles and Parameters approach to Universal Grammar, Second Language Syntax takes the reader through the main research findings in second language grammatical development. For each area, empirical findings are linked to proposals made by linguists working within the Principles and Parameters framework, with the aim of developing a theory of second language syntax.

Das Arbeitsheft bietet eine grundlegende, auf Studierende der Fächer Französisch, Italienisch und Spanisch zugeschnittene Einführung in die neuere generative Syntax. Ausgehend von der Prinzipien- und Parametertheorie (Chomsky 1981) werden vor allem die Neuerungen des generativen Modells im Rahmen des sog. Minimalistischen Programms (Chomsky 1995, 2000, 2005) behandelt. So hat der Minimalismus u. a. zu Überlegungen geführt, die mit anderen modernen Grammatiktheorien wie etwa der Optimalitätstheorie kompatibel sind. Der Band fasst wichtige Etappen in der Entwicklung der neueren Syntaxtheorie während der letzten 30 Jahre zusammen und diskutiert die Neuerungen in Bezug auf ihre Operationalisierbarkeit bei der Analyse romanischer Daten. Behandelt werden Themenfelder wie Wortstellung und Informationsstruktur, Pronominalkonstruktionen, Adjektivstellung sowie sog. quirky subjects. Weiterhin werden die Antisymmetriehypothese (Kayne 1994) und die von Rizzi (1997) vorgeschlagene Feinstruktur der Linken Satzperipherie diskutiert. Die Darstellung orientiert sich an Konzepten, die in der universitären Lehre erprobt wurden, und erlaubt sowohl die Verwendung des Bandes in Anfängerkursen als auch die vertiefende Nutzung durch Fortgeschrittene.

This is the first entry-level introduction to generative syntax to develop afoundational approach that rationally reconstructs syntactic theory from the perspective of currentresearch. It shows how basic grammatical concepts are incorporated into general principles thatanswer some of the fundamental questions of syntactic analysis, including the relationships betweenlexical and phrasal categories, the integration of transformations, the restricted distribution ofNPs; (lexical and nonlexical), and levels of syntactic representation.The book introduces andmotivates the basic components of Chomsky's principles-and-parameters theory with an extensiveanalysis of English and also data from a variety of other languages Beginning with simple conceptsof phrase structure analysis, the text progresses systematically through the subtheories of Case,bounding, government, and predicate-argument structure (T-theory) to the more complicatedconcepts in binding theory and the analysis of empty categories. It also contains detaileddiscussions of overlapping conditions, a full discussion of the Principle of Lexical Satisfaction,as well as substantial material on parametric variation in bounding, Case, and binding. Many pointsof analysis refine the standard view. Numerous exercises reinforce and extend the concepts andanalyses.Robert Freidin is Associate Professor and Director of the Program in Linguistics atPrinceton University. He is editor of Principles and Parameters in Comparative Grammar.

This practical coursebook introduces all the basics of modern syntactic analysis in a simple step-by-step fashion. Each unit is constructed so that the reader discovers new ideas, formulates hypotheses and practises fundamentals. The reader is presented with short sections of explanation with examples, followed by practice exercises. Feedback and comment sections follow to enable students to monitor their progress. No previous background in syntax is assumed. Students move through all the key topics in the field including features, rules of combination and displacement, empty categories, and subcategorization. The theoretical perspective in this work is unique, drawing together the best ideas from three major syntactic frameworks (minimalism, HPSG and LFG). Students using this book will learn fundamentals in such a way that they can easily go on to pursue further study in any of these frameworks.
