E. Selkirk, in International Encyclopedia of the Social & Behavioral Sciences, 2 The Syntax–Prosodic Structure Interface: Serialist or Parallelist?

The work collected in this book represents the results of some intensive recent work on the syntax of natural languages. The authors' differing viewpoints have in common the program of revising current conceptions of syntactic representation so that the role of transformational derivations is reduced or eliminated. The fact that the papers cross-refer to each other a good deal, and that. Theory of Language: Back to Table of Contents: Syntactic Representation. Discussions about word order and the distribution of "that" are meant to demonstrate that English-speakers possess intricate knowledge pertaining to the organization of phrases and sentences. It remains to discover the extent of this knowledge and how to best represent. Syntactic Structures is an influential work in linguistics by American linguist Noam Chomsky, originally published in It is an elaboration of his teacher's, Zellig Harris's, model of transformational generative grammar. A short monograph of about a hundred pages, Chomsky's presentation is recognized as one of the most significant studies of the 20th century, and in was selected by Author: Noam Chomsky. Noam Chomsky's first book on syntactic structures is one of the first serious attempts on the part of a linguist to construct within the tradition of scientific theory-construction a comprehensive theory of language which may be understood in the same sense that a chemical, biological theory is understood by experts in those fields. It is not a mere reorganization of the data into a new kind 2/5(2).

The core point is a reassessment of the nature of transformational structure. Instead of a separate level T of transformations, grammatical transformations are now construed as operations that define the relation between two levels of syntactic representation, both of which are characterized by P-markers.   We first identify one aspect of syntactic representation that exhibits a range of syntactic, morphological, and semantic consequences both within and across languages, namely the hierarchical Author: Jeffrey Lidz. the nature of syntactic representation. dordrecht, boston, london: d. reidel publishing company. p.

This book covers topics in formal linguistics, intonational phonology, computational linguistics, and experimental psycholinguistics, presenting them as an integrated theory of the language faculty. In this book Mark Steedman argues that the surface syntax of natural languages maps spoken and written forms directly to a compositional semantic representation that includes predicate-argument.
