A Structured Approach to English Composition.
Niedermeier, Jerome L.
A possible application of generative-transformational (phrase-structure) grammar to the teaching of English composition at the college freshman level is described in this dissertation, which presents a potential textbook for a course on language and its relationship to culture. Topics discussed include traditional grammar, the bases of phrase-structure grammar, the process of sentence generation, a simplified series of transformations, rhetorical concepts, and the applications of phrase-structure grammar and other concepts of linguistic analysis to the beginning study of literature, with several sample poetic analyses. Appended to the study are a discussion of the results of the use of this textual material in a series of freshmen composition courses and some sample materials used in conjunction with the textual material.
