Grammar of Raising and Control by W. D. Davies

Book Description

"The Grammar of Raising and Control" surveys analyses across a range of theoretical frameworks from Rosenbaum's classic "Standard Theory" analysis (1967) to current proposals within the Minimalist Program, and provides readers with a critical understanding of these, helping them in the process to develop keen insights into the strengths and weaknesses of syntactic arguments in general. This title distills a very successful graduate course in syntax from two prominent figures in the field, covering analyses from a range of theoretical frameworks.It provides readers with an understanding of the various perspectives represented in generative syntax, using a particular class of grammatical constructions as a means of examining the evolution of syntactic theory over the last thirty years. It helps students to develop keen insights into the strengths and weaknesses of syntactic arguments. It includes excerpts from six important works that allow students to familiarize themselves with the original literature while also providing discussion of the theoretical context in which they were written.
