Description:

This book is designed as a textbook and is intended to present a sample of the more popular approaches to linguistic theorizing.

It covers different aspects of each theory including general ontology, methodology, world view, and certain specifics including its problem-solving capacity regarding the English auxiliary complex. It gives a brief summary of the salient points of each theory and concludes with a brief treatment of concurrent developments in phonology. Included are discussions on: tagmemics generative transformational grammar stratificational linguistics
Montague grammar generalized phrase structure grammar lexical-functional grammar relational grammar, and functional approaches to grammar.

Jerold Edmondson is a leading figure in the studies of Kadai languages of southeast Asia, and is professor of Linguistics at the University of Texas at Arlington. Donald A.
