"This is a very important book. Bresnan combines her famously lucid prose style, her unobtrusive erudition, and a penetrating grasp of the issues to provide an overview of LFG that will be greatly welcomed by advanced student and researcher alike. The remarkable empirical and theoretical breadth of the work make this essential reading for all serious students of syntax and morphosyntax, regardless of their theoretical persuasion." Andrew Spencer, University of Essex
