Meaning and Sentence Structure
Bowers, Frederick
English Quarterly, 4, 2, 5-12, Sum 71
It is frequently observed that modern English has a fixed word order. Therefore, the English speaker is locked inside a syntactic system which leaves him few expressional options. The author disagrees and suggests that because of options of word order, the English speaker can impose his own level of meaning on his utterances. (Author/RR)
