Descripción del producto


"Andrew Carnie's Syntax quickly became the standard textbook in generative syntax because it was neither overly technical nor artificially simple. The second edition is substantially better and more complete. The original discussion is expanded and there are a number of new chapters on advanced topics like raising and control, and the book continues to include chapters that introduce alternative theories like LFG and HPSG. To my mind, this is by far the best choice on the market today." Peter Cole, University of Delaware Praise for the first edition... "From first-hand experience, Carnie's book provides a highly readable and engaging initiation into the mindset and preoccupations of current syntactic theory. It is useful in tying the cognitive implications and background of current Chomskyan work together with the increasing cross-linguistic emphasis in syntax. The problem sets alone were extremely appreciated by my undergraduates." Mark Baltin, New York University "This book is a perfect example of how sophisticated syntactic concepts can be presented in a genuinely reader-friendly way. The syntax student is led carefully through argumentation to current syntactic theory and at the end has a clear understanding not only of the whats of syntax but also the whys." Lisa deMena Travis, McGill University "The book is written in a reader-friendly way, and guides students to grasp complicated syntactic concepts and analyses." The Linguist List

Libro sólo apto para los que se ven o nos hemos visto obligados a estudiarlo en alguna universidad como si fuese una nueva "Biblia de la Sintaxis". Esta vez, siguiendo la moda "generativa".
El autor pretende ser ameno pero acaba resultando pachanguero.
Una teoría más de elaboración sintáctica que pretende ser universal y que al hacer aguas por todas partes, el mismo autor le acaba poniendo un parche tras otro, capítulo tras capítulo. Alguno de esos "parches", con elaboraciones oníricas y, por supuesto, incompletas.

Este libro es un placer; está muy bien explicado, va paso por paso de manera clara, poco a poco avanza en la complejidad hasta que uno mismo se sorprende de lo que ha llegado a aprender. En realidad creo que descubrí lo que me gustaba la Sintaxis gracias a este libro.

Fantástico libro, odio la sintaxis y me ha gustado, creo que es lo más elocuente que se puede decir. Toca esperar las notas.

HASH(0x9feb1384) de un máximo de 5 estrellas Great text for the beginning linguist 12 de diciembre de 2003
Por James G. Warden - Publicado en
Formato: Tapa dura
Carnie's "Syntax" is a good text for the graduate student, although it falls for many of the same pitfalls any beginning syntax book faces. The layout in this book is wonderful. The writing is mostly clear and even has a dry sense of humor at points. Indices are great and it is easy to go back and find what you need. Each chapter - indeed each subsection - has a summary of the ideas learned. For ideas like raising and control this is an invaluable way to quickly compare the differences between the concepts. There are also definitions for the theories and concepts discussed. Great job on this.
Exercises are great. Some of them can really push a student. But they are designed in such a way that to solve them, students will usually have to link ideas from other chapters and draw logical conclusions. This really helps students start to build up a linguistic framework, as opposed to just scattered, disparate pieces of information. He relies heavily on Irish. But, in all fairness, the problems are relevant and serve the student well.
The only problem the "Syntax" really had is where it chose to simplify the model. Any introduction to syntax has to simplify its model for students to understand. The problem is where to simplify. By and large, Carnie succeeds in making complex material understandable. But in a few cases the simplifications can confuse the student more than the complex concept would have. This is nothing that a good professor can't overcome, though. There are also a few big ideas handled in a cursor way or not at all. DP-hypothesis is mentioned in such a way that the reader wonders why he even brought it up (to be perfectly honest, nothing in his models even require it). VP shells aren't even mentioned.
Carnie does a better job than most in incorporating and addressing competing theories. He still has a minimalist perspective - which I don't have a problem with - but is less dogmatic than most. The end of the book even has chapters on Lexical-functional grammar and HPSG. Hey, students are intelligent. Give them the skills and they can make intelligent choices on their own.
All-in-all this is a good book for an introductory syntax course at the graduate level. It can be used for a person studying syntax independently, but don't hesitate to check out papers or other texts when you feel confused. There were some concessions made for simplification and often that extra bit of information can make it click.

HASH(0x9feb1894) de un máximo de 5 estrellas A perfect Introduction for students of syntax 2 de octubre de 2005
Por James MacDonald - Publicado en
Formato: Tapa blanda
I don't know what book Joo Y. Chung (see review below) was reading, but it wasn't the same book that I read. Carnie's textbook is a very accessible text that avoids technical jargon (not "snobbily dumbed down" as Chung asserts) and I think the argumentation is entirely straightforward. For example in chapter 5, Carnie shows how the X-bar theory follows directly from the evidence of replacement operations. The motivations are totally clear and obvious, nothing is an "edict from on high" (ok, in some of the later chapters, Carnie doesn't immediately explain somethings, but he always gets back to it later (e.g. in chapter 6 there is no explanation of why we have specifiers, but Carnie is totally up front about it, and the book returns to it in later chapters. Sometimes I didn't understand the motivations for things until I tried the problem sets, but overall I think everything was pretty clearly laid out.) I've taken two Syntax classes, one taught with Adger's book and one taught with Carnie's and Carnie's wins hands down. In fact, this book was far clearer than my professor ever was in his lectures. I wish there was some more detailed and more advanced material in the book, but other wise I think it's the best linguistics textbook that I've (been forced to) read.

HASH(0x9feb1ccc) de un máximo de 5 estrellas A solid introduction to the field 25 de noviembre de 2012
Por Kotoschov - Publicado en
Formato: Tapa blanda Compra verificada
The book offers a very good introduction to the field of generative syntactic theory. It shows many of the most critical theories and hypotheses in pre-90's syntax and doesn't skip the motivation of the theories. It's very clearly written, and I went through it quite fluidly.
A major drawback is the lack of examples. In order to genuinely understand a syntactic theory you need to know more about the kinds of linguistic phenomena it's based on. And there's more than one unexplained gap in the book - by "gaps" I mean claims that are made without actually being explained. Things that are stated as though they were axioms, even though they have an explanation.
A book without these problems is Hageman's "Government and Binding Theory". As good as this book may be (and it's good), it can't match the 700+ page monster written by Hageman in terms of coverage.

HASH(0x9feb15b8) de un máximo de 5 estrellas Good Basics 2 de marzo de 2003
Por A. Sullivan - Publicado en
Formato: Tapa blanda
I'm using this text for college level introductory course in Syntax. The book is a really good source for the basics of X-Bar theory. A few of the concepts lack clear examples, but overall it does a great job of explaining things. In fact, it's clarity (for the most part) helps me sort out what my professor is blathering about. I refer to the book more than my class notes for help in analysing data.
I think this is a great book for both students and also those with an interest in linguistics and would like to pursue Syntax in more depth.

Shipped on time and in good condition. I was worried because my college only released the book list close to the start of the semester, so I was worried it wouldn't make it in time. But. It did, and it arrived around the projected arrival date. I am currently using it and quite pleased.
