Wisconsin Papers in Linguistics: Volume 1, Number 1.
Linguistic Circle of Madison, WI.
This volume of papers in linguistics is the first in a series of proposed semiannual publications sponsored by the Linguistic Circle of Madison, Wisconsin. The first of the four papers concerns recursive rules, their use, and possible necessity. It is the author's intention to examine some of the properties of rules which he believes to hold for any grammar which describes constituent structure. The author examines certain properties of recursive systems of rules. The second paper provides a detailed discussion of the Bloomfieldian model. The third paper presents some thoughts concerning the hypothesis that Semitic possessed a morpheme of length. Hebrew and Arabic examples are given. The final article makes a study of particular features in Pashto; the findings indicate that Pashto may be an Iranian rather than an Indic language. (VM)
