Description - Thinking Syntactically by Liliane Haegeman
"Thinking Syntactically: A Guide to Argumentation and Analysis" is a textbook designed to teach introductory students the skills of relating data to theory and theory to data. It helps students develop their thinking and argumentation skills rather than merely introducing them to one particular version of syntactic theory. Structured around a wide range of exercises that use clear and compelling logic to build arguments and lead up to theoretical proposals. Data drawn from current media sources, including newspapers, books, and television programs, to help students formulate and test hypotheses. Generative in spirit, but does not focus on specific theoretical approaches but enables students to understand and evaluate different approaches more easily. Written by an established author with an international reputation.
