Questions of Syntax

Richard S. Kayne

Oxford Studies in Comparative Syntax

  • Collects sixteen papers spanning the career of one of the most influential theoretical linguists in the field
  • Probes questions concerning the most primitive units of syntactic variation and suggests that temporal order is more deeply embedded in the language faculty than previously assumed
  • Builds a whole framework for the study of comparative and micro-comparative syntax, a powerful tool that can unlock the primitive units of language
