4.0 out of 5 stars A valuable, basic introduction to syntax, 14 Aug 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Beginning Syntax (Paperback)
'Beginning Syntax' is a straightforward and clear entry into the world of English syntax and grammar. The author takes the reader by the hand and gradually builds knowledge from the simplest examples onwards. Exercises are presented after each section.
I am currently attempting to design a parsing program with a view to creating a natural language interface. This book (although not in anyway related to computational aspects of syntax) helps in setting the way for my efforts, without becoming bogged down in intricacy.
It would most suit those who want an easy introduction to syntax without being bombarded by dense and specialised syntactic theories.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really Useful Book, 23 April 2012
This review is from: Beginning Syntax (Paperback)
If you would like a really good explanation of sentence structure and some grammar, I would recommend this book. Given the original date of publication - not sure why it's so expensive. However, if you really want some understanding of sentence structure, as parents, educators and or those on a self improvement 'drive' - try this one.
Caution: If you want to get the best out of this book, do not attempt to start from the middle or skip sections. Examples are numbered so you need to refer back to previous numbered sections. Good luck!! ;-)
