Introduction to Grammar

This is a brief book on the basics of grammar. It provides an overview of syntax and morphology, two of the central subfields of linguistics, and their interactions. It relies only on widely-accepted notions in theoretical linguistics, such as concatenative morphology, syntax trees, X-bar structures and phrase structure grammars. However, it does not adhere to any particular current theory of grammar. Linguistics is a prerequisite. It is intended to be followed by such books as Morphology, Lexical-Functional Grammar, Government and Binding Theory, and The Minimalist Program.
