Abstract

Olga Mišeska Tomic,  professor of  English Linguistics at the  Universities of Skopje nad Novi Sad, has written a well-organised survey of major syntactical issues in the generative approach in general and as it applies to English sentence grammar. It is a well-researched book with and astonishing amount  of information, readily comprehensible to the language student,  for whom it is principally aimed. The au­ thor skilfully conducts the reader through quite complex matters, carefully avoiding confusion between simplification and distortion. The main aim of the book, as out­ lined in the brief Preface, is to expose the assumptions and problems involved in the conceptualisation of the issues rather than the technical, theory-internal  formaliza­ tions. This is by no means a simple task and for most of the ground covered the auth or has had to construct the emerging picture from a patchwork of specialized con­ tributions  to individual aspects of English sentence construction.
