David Adger's book, "Core Syntax: A Minimalist Approach" is currently being used for a class on generative syntax that I'm taking. I have mixed feelings about it. From a student's perspective, it's extremely dense because Adger takes so much time motivating the system he's proposing throughout the book. It's almost like a syntactic novel in that sense. Each chapter can't really stand alone because it's slowly building on itself and each chapter motivates something that comes along in the following chapter.
Core Syntax: A Minimalist Approach. Core syntax is a somewhat cheeky name for a textbook. Preface i. 1 Core Concepts 1. What is a sentence? . . My knowledge of history is extremely partial, forgettable, explicit and learned.
Oxford University Press. It assumes no prior knowledge of linguistic theory and little of elementary grammar. It will suit students coming to syntactic theory for the first time either as graduates or undergraduates
Oxford University Press. It will suit students coming to syntactic theory for the first time either as graduates or undergraduates. It will also be useful for those in fields such as computational science, artificial intelligence, or cognitive psychology who need a sound knowledge of current syntactic theory.

Core syntax is a somewhat cheeky name for a textbook. There are many ‘core’ aspects of syntax, depending on the viewpoint you take. In this book, I have tried to highlight three aspects. Many working syntacticians will disagree that these are the core areas, but I hope that everyone will agree that they at least provide a consistent perspective. In the book, I develop certain theoretical ideas which stem from the concerns articulated by Chomsky, and I use these ideas to build a system.
Minimalist syntax and Core syntax are reasonably good textbooks . They should be very helpful indeed in teaching a syntax course on current Principles and Parameters theory (P&P; Chomsky 1981) that focuses on the Minimalist Program (MP; Chomsky 1995, 2000, 2001, 2004, 2005). The books present a range of syntactic phenomena, which are for the most part discussed lucidly and illustrated by considerable relevant data. E-mail: ash asudeheton. ca, ida toivoneneton. Oxford Core Linguistics. Provides a fully up to date theoretical framework for the study of syntax within the Chomskyan Minimalist model. Emphasis on structure of syntactic arguments and on the interaction between theory, analysis, and data clearly illustrates how syntactic arguments are developed.
