Reviews

'Tallerman's strongly comparative approach to introducing the basic concepts of syntax has materialised in a very readable and interesting book...Understanding Syntax is an absolute pleasure to read, thanks to its casual, down-to-earth style. It is user-friendly and accessible, and takes its readers seriously'


Glot International

'Tallerman's Understanding Syntax, now in its third, revised, expanded and
improved edition, is ...a very accessible, step-by-step introduction to the scientific
study of syntax, which not only presents the major concepts and categories
associated with this branch of linguistics but also addresses some more advanced
issues...'
