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.
