Title: A Notional Theory of Syntactic Categories
Written By: John M. Anderson
Series Title: Cambridge Studies in Linguistics 82
Description:

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). It allows for there to be
peripheral members of a lexical class which may not obviously conform to
the general definition. The author proposes a notation based on semantic
features which accounts for the syntactic behaviour of classes. The book
also presents a case for considering this classification- again in rather
traditional vein- to be basic to determining the syntactic structure of
sentences. Syntactic structure is thus erected in a very restricted
fashion, without recourse to movement or empty elements.
