DELANCEY, ROBERT W.
A BRIEF INTRODUCTION TO SELECED ASPECTS OF THE LINGUISTICS ANALYSIS OF ENGLISH IS PRESENTED IN THIS MONOGRAPH. FOLLOWING A DEFINITION OF LANGUAGE AND AN EXPLANATION OF THE COMMUNICATION PROCESS, THE PEDAGOGICAL AND DESCRIPTIVE INADEQUACIES OF TRADITIONAL GRAMMAR ARE EXAMINED. THE CONSIDERATION OF STRUCTURAL ELEMENTS IN ENGLISH CENTERS ON PHONOLOGY AND GRAMMAR. THE SECTION ON THE PHONOLOGICAL ELEMENTS OF ENGLISH EXPLAINS AND ILLUSTRATES PHONEMES, GRAPHEMES, AND THE INTONATIONAL PATTERNS OF SPOKEN ENGLISH--PITCH, STRESS, AND JUNCTURE. THE GRAMMATICAL DEVICES WHICH AFFECT MEANING--WORD ORDER, DERIVATIONAL AFFIXES, INFLECTIONS, STRUCTURE WORDS, AND INTONATION--ARE THEN TREATED, AS WELL AS TWO MAJOR CLASSIFICATIONS OF THE PARTS OF SPEECH--(1) FORM CLASSES--NOUNS, VERBS, ADJECTIVES, AND ADVERBS AND (2) STRUCTURE WORDS--PREPOSITIONS, CONNECTIVES, PRONOUNS, INTERROGATIVES, AND TRANSITIONALS. A DISCUSSION OF THE FUNCTIONAL CLASSIFICATION OF WORDS AS NOMINALS, ADJECTIVALS, AND ADVERBIALS IS FOLLOWED BY A BRIEF EXPLANATION OF CONSTRUCTIONS (WORD UNITS WHICH SERVE A GRAMMATICAL FUNCTION WITHIN A SENTENCE). FINALLY, THE POSSIBLE LEVELS OF SENTENCE ANALYSIS AND THE BASIC SENTENCE PATTERNS OF ENGLISH ARE EXPLAINED.
