Practical Guide to Syntactic Analysis, 2nd Edition
The Practical Guide to Syntactic Analysis is a resource for students and practitioners of syntax at all levels, covering matters that textbooks do not explain, including the seductive metaphors of generative grammar, the character of linguistic argumentation, theory-independent guidance for refining and presenting analyses, and a capsule sketch of the evolution of syntactic theory into its current directions. The sections are relatively independent, and may be consulted in any order. The Second Edition adds a reference guide to over 60 grammatical phenomena that every syntactician should be familiar with.
