Comparative 'Rather.'
Dieterich, Thomas G.; Napoli, Donna Jo
Journal of Linguistics, v18 n1 p137-65 Mar 1982
Discusses 'rather than' sentences with tensed or untensed verb in second clause as having underlying form of comparative sentences. Concludes 'rather than' preceding a tensed clause represents the truth-functional connective 'and not' which contradicts claim that this connective cannot be represented lexically in natural language and raises challenge for theories that cannot represent linear order in underlying structure.
