  "description": "<p>This book reconsiders the role of order and structure in syntax,<br>\nfocusing on fundamental issues such as word order and grammatical<br>\nfunctions. The papers in the collection ask what word order can tell us<br>\nabout syntactic structure, using evidence from V2, object shift, word<br>\norder gaps and different kinds of movement. All of the papers address in<br>\nsome way the tension between modelling what can vary across languages<br>\nwhilst improving our understanding of what might be universal to human<br>\nlanguage.</p>\n\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n\n<p>&nbsp;</p>",
