This clear and well-organized book is an introduction to Spanish syntax that assumes no prior knowledge of current theory. Following a descriptive overview of the major characteristics of the grammar, it describes facts about Spanish, such as its word order, notions of "subject", "direct object", "auxiliary verb" etc... The book combines traditional grammatical description with perspectives gained from recent research in the Principles and Parameters framework. It also presents useful theoretical concepts such as semantic roles, Case, and Predication.
