Linear Syntax makes a case for a critical reassessment of the widespread view that syntax can be reduced to tree structures. It argues that clausal syntax should instead be based on concepts that are defined in terms of linear order. By connecting the descriptive tools of modern phrase-structure grammar with traditional descriptive scholarship, Andreas Kathol offers a new perspective on many long-standing problems in syntactic theory.

Industry Reviews

`Review from previous edition 'An important contribution to the exploration of Germanic syntax within the theoretical assumptions of HPSG (Head-driven Phrase Structure Grammar) ... the book builds a bridge of communication between different research camps and gives linguists without a Germanic background access to the classical insights of topological theory, whose merits, as we see, have come an exceptionally long way.''
