Book Information


Title: A Notional Theory of Syntactic Categories
Written By: John M. Anderson

This book presents an innovative theory of syntactic categories and the
lexical classes they define. It revives the traditional idea that these are
to be distinguished notionally (semantically). The author proposes a
notation based on semantic features that accounts for the syntactic
behavior of classes. The book also presents a case for considering this
classification--again in a rather traditional vein--to be basic to
determining the syntactic structure of sentences.
