The provision of end–of–chapter answers makes The Syntax Workbook especially useful for self–study.

The exercises and topics covered include phrase structure, the lexicon, Case theory, ellipsis, auxiliaries, movement, covert movement, locality conditions, VP shells, and control. A website at includes additional resources that can be accessed, including further exercises, links for further reading, and extra material on HPSG and LFG.
