August 2012, ©2012, Wiley-Blackwell
The Syntax Workbook: A Companion to Carnie

The Syntax Workbook was written as a response to the students and instructors who, over the years, have requested more problem sets that give greater experience in analyzing syntactic structure. Aligned chapter-by-chapter with Carnie’s bestselling textbook, this workbook provides over 120 new exercises on all of the major topics in generative syntax.

  • An all-new workbook to accompany the bestselling syntax textbook, Syntax: A Generative Introduction, which answers the need for a practical text in this field
  • Features over 120 problem sets with answers, designed to give students greater experience of analyzing syntactic structure
  • Exercises and topics covered includes phrase structure, the lexicon, Case theory, ellipsis, auxiliaries, movement, covert movement, locality conditions, VP shells, and control
  • Supported by expanded online student and instructor resources, including extra chapters on HPSG,  LFG and time-saving materials for lecturers, including problem sets, PowerPoint slides, and an instructors’ manual
  • Structured to reflect the style and chapter-by-chapter coverage of the textbook, but its practical, reader-friendly layout also makes it suitable for use as a stand-alone Workbook
