Readings in Applied Transformational Grammar.
Lester, Mark, Ed.
This volume contains nineteen essays, dealing with various aspects of transformational grammar, by scholars such as Noam Chomsky, Eric H. Lenneberg, and Leon Jakobovits. These essays have been reprinted from sources such as "College English" and "Language Learning" and are intended for the most part for a nontechnical audience. The anthology is divided into two parts. Part I deals with problems in psycholinguistics, particularly in the area of language acquisition. Part II, "The Application of Transformational Grammar to English Teaching," contains sections dealing with the use of transformational grammar in literature and stylistic analysis, in composition writing, in second language teaching and in teaching reading. With a few exceptions each essay is preceded by an introduction which attempts to paraphrase the main ideas and arguments of the essay. (FWB)
