Working Papers in Linguistics No. 11.
Heringer, James T.; And Others
This collection of working papers contains four papers on varied topics in lintuistic theory. The first paper, "Some Grammatical Correlates of Felicity Conditions and Presuppositions," attempts to show that there is a systematic relationship between what a speaker of a language does in uttering sentences of that language and the syntactic form of those utterances. The second paper is the translation of a Russian article on the typology of causative construction. The article presents the study of a universal classificatory schema which would be appropriate in different languages. The third paper considers why sound change is gradual and discusses the factors and processes involved. The final paper explores the feasibility of the basic idea of natural phonology and considers whether the restrictions on inventories of underlying phonological segments are due to processes rather than abstract hierarchies or morpheme structure constraints. Vowel systems are considered here. (VM)
