Abstract:

This ground-breaking volume sets out an original model of the dynamics
of language processing, which can be used to explain the structural
properties of language in a simple and elegant way. The model is
introduced both informally and formally, and is applied to a range of
languages.


Alongside formal definitions, the authors use step-by-step derivations
and detailed lexical definitions to illustrate this new form of
syntactic analysis and to show how the model can be applied to a broad
range of languages. In this way, the reader gets a sense of the rich
potential the framework provides for general application to linguistic
analysis.

In bringing together explanations of knowledge of language, and the
way language is used in parsing, the book challenges basic assumptions
of linguistic theory, and is an essential read for anyone interested
in what it means to know a language.
