Patrick Farrell shows how grammatical relations are characterized in competing theories of grammar and reveals the different theories' merits and limitations. He compares mainstream generative-transformational theory with formalist and functionalist approaches, showing points of convergence and divergence. This is an ideal introduction to the field for graduate students and will be a useful reference for theoretical syntacticians of all persuasions.
