Clearly written and comprehensive in scope, this is an essential guide to syntaxin the Hungarian language. It describes the key grammatical features of the lan-guage, focussing on the phenomena that have proved to be theoretically the mostrelevant and that have attracted the most attention. The analysis of Hungarian inthe generative framework since the late 1970s has helped to bring phenomenawhich are non-overt in the English language into the focus of syntactic research.As Katalin´E. Kiss shows, its results have been built into the hypotheses thatcurrently make up Universal Grammar. The textbook explores issues currentlyat the center of theoretical debates, including the syntax and semantics of focus,the analysis of quantifier scope, and negative concord. This useful guide will bewelcomed by students and researchers working on syntax and those interested inFinno-Ugric languages.
