The Significance of Linguistic Generalizations
Hurford, James R.
Language, 53, 3, 574-620, Sep 77
Addresses the problem of defining the notion "linguistically significant generalization." A rigorous objective method for determining the significance of a generalization, based on probability theory, is proposed. The proposal is illustrated by applying it to examples central to theorizing in generative grammar. (Author/KM)
