Modal "Auxiliaries" in Generative Grammar--Some Pedagogic Implications
Lee, D. A.
International Review of Applied Linguistics in Language Teaching, 13, 4, 263-274, Nov 75
A comparison is made of two different approaches to the treatment of modals in the framework of a transformational grammar--that of Seuren, who analyzes modals as "operators," and that of the generative semanticists who take them to be "higher verbs." Implications for language teaching are discussed. (Author/RM)
