Auxiliary Inversions and the Notion "Default Specification."
Green, Georgia M.; Morgan, Jerry L.
Journal of Linguistics, v32 n1 p43-56 Mar 1996
Demonstrates that a comprehensive account of inverted structures in English encompasses more diversity of structural types than is generally recognized and is possible in a constraint-based grammar with monotonic multiple-inheritance and no overridable default specifications. The article points out that the existence of such an account shows the expendability of default specifications for concise description. (22 references) (Author/CK)
