VV’s Introduction is an excellent guide for any student of syntax, including the beginners, but can also be used by syntacticians as a very convenient conspectus. Although it jumps from simplicity to complexity in some very few occasions, it is a very good start for anyone interested in syntax. It is highly recommended as a textbook for any student in linguistics, and as a summary of achievements, trends, and problems in modern syntactic theory.


A generous number of exercises is included, which provide practice with the concepts introduced in the text and in addition expose the student to in-depth analysis of data from many languages.
