The general aim of the Senshu University Project The Development of the
Anglo-Saxon Language and Linguistic Universals
is investigation of
structural characteristics common to the Germanic languages, such as
English, German and Norwegian, and of works on and in the tradition of
Generative Grammar founded by Noam Chomsky in the 1950s. The central idea
of Generative Grammar, that the nature of natural-language syntax can be
captured by a finite set of rules which are able to produce an infinite set
of well-formed structures has been highly evaluated and influential even in
related fields such as biolinguistics, philosophy, psychology and computer
science. Noam Chomsky and Language Descriptions is a collection of
articles that focus on the earliest but essential linguistic theory
proposed by Noam Chomsky and articles that discuss specific topics
pertaining to the study Germanic languages, in particular English and German.

It is divided into two parts:

Part 1.
Genesis of Generative Grammar;

Part 2.
Current Issues in Language Descriptions.

The present book will be of general interest to linguists who seek to
understand the original idea of Generative Grammar and nature of the
Germanic languages.
