Description

First Published in 1998. This work is an unrevised version of my 1996 University of California, Santa Cruz Ph.D. dissertation. The only changes that have been made are corrections of typographical errors, minor rewording, updating of references, and the inclusion of an index. I would like to thank Rosemary Plapp and Kristi Long for help with proofreading and preparation of the manuscript.

Table of Contents

Preface, Acknowledgments, Introduction, 1 Clausal Syntax, 2 Verb Raising, 3 Imperative Subjects, 4 Do(n’t) in Imperatives, 5 The Phrase Structure of Imperatives, 6 Do Not in Imperatives, References, Index
