Adopting the objectives of Chomsky's Principles and Parameters approach to Universal Grammar, "Second Language Syntax" takes the reader through the main research findings in second language grammatical development. For each area, empirical findings are linked to proposals made by linguists working within the Principles and Parameters framework, with the aim of developing a theory of second language syntax.

Industry Reviews

"This book is remarkably clear in its exposition, exhaustive in coverage and intelligent in its argumentation. It will find its niche in the burgeoning field of Second Language Acquisition." Antonella Sorace, University of Edinburgh

"This is a fine text. The material is well-chosen and presented in an accessible and engaging manner. The exercises add utility and interest. Moreover, the author's unassuming authorial voice and lack of dogmatism make the book a valuable contribution." Margaret Thomas, Boston College
