Andrew Radford is a British linguist known for his work in syntax and child language acquisition. His first important contribution to the field was a book on Italian syntax. He has since published several books on syntax within the framework of generative grammar and the Minimalist Program of Noam Chomsky , a number of which have appeared in the series Cambridge Textbooks in Linguistics. In the s, Radford was a pioneer of the maturation-based structure building model of child language, and the acquisition of functional categories in early child English within the Principles and Parameters framework, [3] [4] in which children are seen as gradually building up more and more complex structures, with lexical categories like noun and verb being acquired before functional- syntactic categories like determiner and complementiser : this research resulted in the publication of a monograph on Syntactic Theory and the Acquisition of English Syntax in , and numerous articles on the acquisition of syntax by monolingual, bilingual and language-disordered children. Since , Radford has researched the syntax of colloquial English , using data recorded from unscripted radio and TV broadcasts. He produced a research monograph on this, and a number of articles, and is preparing a follow-up research monograph on the syntax of relative clauses in colloquial English.
