Integration of Transformational Theories on English Syntax, Volume I and Volume II.
Stockwell, Robert P.; And Others
This study attempts to bring together most of the information about the transformational analysis of the grammar of English that was available up through the summer of 1968, and to integrate it into a single coherent format. The format chosen is that of C. Fillmore (the "Deep Case" hypothesis) combined with the "Lexicalist" hypothesis of N. Chomsky. Volume I contains the General Introduction, Base Rules, Case Placement, Determiners, Pronominalization, Negation, Conjunction, and Relativization chapters. The second volume presents Nominalization and Complementation, Interrogative, Imperative, Genetive, Cleft and Pseudo-Cleft, Passive, Rule Ordering, Sample Lexicon, and Bibliography. For related documents, see also ED 034 168, ED 034 209, and ED 034 210. (Author/JD)
