About the Author

Noel Burton-Roberts is Emeritus Professor of English Language and Linguistics at Newcastle University, UK.


"This is the go-to book for all students and teachers of English syntax. Rigorous and yet highly accessible, it guides the reader from phrasal analysis through to complex sentence structure, and is packed with lively examples and valuable practical exercises." Siobhan Chapman, University of Liverpool, UK "A welcome addition to the fourth edition of this excellent textbook is a very helpful website. The style remains very user-friendly, and the structure of the book is very well thought-out: Burton Roberts guides the reader step-by-step through increasing syntactic complexity, always building incrementally on what has come before. I have been teaching classes based on this book since 1986, and have found it invaluable. The final chapter remains a very good introduction to general issues about the nature of human language. I recommend it with great enthusiasm." Philip Carr, University of Montpellier, France
