Oxford Studies in Comparative Syntax RSS

The books in this series offer accounts of syntactic structures across multiple languages. Close cross-linguistic comparison is used as a tool to unearth properties of the language faculty that might otherwise have been difficult to bring to the fore. Explaining why a property found in language A is not found in language B often sheds light on the syntax of both languages. The series is closely associated with the cartographic approach to language, in which linguists map and compare the syntactic and semantic/pragmatic properties of different languages, considering how what is thus revealed impinges on broader questions related to the Minimalist Program and other recent theoretical developments.
