Publisher Description:
Coordination in syntax is an important part of the analysis of sentence structure. Niina Ning Zhang addresses the issues raised by coordinate pairings and the implications of these structures, looking in particular at examples within English and Chinese. The volume covers the major questions regarding coordinates in syntax, providing a fresh perspective to arguments raised within previous literature. She explains how such coordinate complexes are structured, how some coordinators can be combined in parts of speech, the fixed nature of some of these pairings and what changes exist between the coordinate and non-coordinate constructions. The theories raised are backed up by a rich variety of examples as well as providing a cross-linguistic perspective, contextualising these ideas within current syntactic research.

Contributor Bio(s): Zhang, Niina Ning: - Niina Ning Zhang is Associate Professor and Director within the Graduate Institute of Linguistics at National Chung-Cheng University. She previously co-edited Ellipsis in Conjunction (2000) and has written many journal articles on syntactic theory and practice.
