A Computerized Phrase-Structure Grammar (Modern Hebrew): Part II, A Complex-Constituent Phrase-Structure Grammar of Modern Hebrew Syntax. Final Report.
Price, James D.
The second part of the four-part report of research on the development of a computerized, phrase-structure grammar of modern Hebrew describes the application of a generalized complex-constituent-phrase structure grammar to modern Hebrew. This volume discusses the details of the grammar: limitations, input and output, symbols, rules, tree diagrams, word classification, syntax, and orthography. An appendix provides a Hebrew-English dictionary. The grammar presented here provides new material for teacher training in the form of a transformational-type, theoretical model of modern Hebrew that views the language as an integrated whole. By studying the language this way, teachers of Hebrew can acquire a better understanding of the deep structure of the language. The formal presentation of the grammar, however, may not be the best form for training teachers. For related reports see FL 002 627, FL 002 629, and FL 002630. (Author/VM)
