Title: Non-Transformational Syntax
Subtitle: Formal and Explicit Models of Grammar
Written By: RobertD.Borsley
URL: http://www.wiley.com/remtitle.cgi?isbn=0631209654
Description:

This authoritative introduction explores the main non-transformational syntactic
frameworks: Head-driven Phrase Structure Grammar, Lexical-Functional
Grammar, Categorial Grammar, and Simpler Syntax. The chapters by key
linguists in the field cover elementary principles and more advanced issues and
also explore a range of issues that arise in connection with these contemporary
approaches, including questions about processing and acquisition. By shedding
new light on alternate approaches to the phenomena of syntax, “Non-
Transformational Syntax” represents an important contribution to the study of
formal linguistics.
