Generating English Sentences, Books 1-4 and Tests.
Stokoe, William C., Jr.; And Others
These volumes (with tests) on constructing effective English sentences are designed for secondary students who do not often hear standard dialects--e.g., the deaf, the disadvantaged, or the speakers of English as a second language. Transformational-generative grammar is used to describe the structures and operations that the student most needs. Lessons, supported by more than 250 exercises, deal progressively with phrase structure and transform rules for devising sentence patterns which utilize: (1) nominal fields containing pronouns or nouns, (2) transitive and intransitive verbs, direct and indirect objects, adverbs and adverbial fields, (3) verb combinations, (4) tenses of "be," used variously as a linking, describing, auxiliary, or intransitive verb, (5) adverb and adjective fields and the active and passive voices, (6) compound elements, and (7) adjective, adverb, or noun clauses.
