Grammar? Today?
Stockwell, Robert P.
The Journal of the Conference on College Composition and Communication, v15 nl p56-59 Feb 1964
The complex nature of grammar and its relevance to teaching today are explored in the light of modern linguistics. Reviewing the development and fundamental theory of transformational generative grammar, the author points out its substantial merit and also its failure to be understood as exemplary grammatical analysis of language rather than grammar itself. Final remarks deal with the validity of grammatical rules and the proposal that grammar be considered a subject of study in its own right. (RL)
