SECTOR ANALYSIS--FROM SENTENCE TO MORPHEME IN ENGLISH.
ALLEN, ROBERT L.
THE ADVANTAGES OF SECTOR ANALYSIS ARE DISCUSSED, WITH SPECIAL REGARD TO THE SEPARATION OF FUNCTION AND FORM IN SENTENCE ANALYSIS. SECTOR ANALYSIS, LIKE TAGMEMIC ANALYSIS, REJECTS THE USE OF REWRITE RULES FOR EXPRESSING GRAMMATICAL TRANSFORMS, AS WELL AS THE CONCEPT OF "KERNEL SENTENCES." A BRIEF DISCUSSION OF A CHILD'S LANGUAGE ACQUISITION PROCESS IS GIVEN. VARIOUS "SECTORS," OR HIGH LEVEL POSITIONS IN THE SENTENCE, ARE PROPOSED ALONG WITH SUCH DIFFERENT TYPES OF CONSTRUCTIONS AS CLAUSE, CLAUSID, TRUNK, PREDICATE, AND PREDICATID. THE PREDICATID IS CONSIDERED TO BE AN IMPORTANT CONSTRUCTION IN ENGLISH, AS IT CAN OCCUR IN SEVERAL DIFFERENT SECTORS, ON VARIOUS LEVELS, AS WELL AS IN THE SHORTENED SENTENCES OF EVERYDAY CONVERSATION. "GOING HOW NOW.--BEEN WAITING LONG." THE AUTHOR CONCLUDES THAT NOT ALL THE SUBSECTORS ON PREDICATID AND LOWER LEVELS HAVE BEEN INVESTIGATED AS YET. THE ARTICLE IS A CONDENSATION OF A MORE DETAILED ANALYSIS OF ENGLISH GRAMMAR, AND INCLUDES A THOROUGH STUDY OF THREE MODEL SENTENCES. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE GEORGETOWN ROUNDTABLE CONFERENCE (WASHINGTON, D.C., MARCH 18, 1967) AND IS TO BE PUBLISHED IN THE PROCEEDINGS. (FB)
