Notional Theory of Syntactic Categories by John M. Anderson
Book DescriptionThis 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.

Books By Author John M. Anderson
Substance of Language, Hardback (October 2011)
The three linked but independent volumes of The Substance of Language collectively overhaul linguistic theory from phonology to semantics and syntax to pragmatics and offer a full account of how linguistic related to function. They comprise a powerfully coherent understanding of the nature of language and a major contribution to linguistic theory.
Phonology-Syntax Analogies, Hardback (October 2011)
Phonology-Syntax Analogies looks at the degree to which analogies between syntax and phonology result from their being representational subsystems within the overall system of language, at why they sometimes break down, and at how far semantic and phonetic properties limit such analogies.
Domain of Syntax, Hardback (October 2011)
The Domain of Syntax explores the consequences for syntax of assuming that language is grounded in cognition and perception. He considers whether this permits a lexicalist approach to syntax that would allow it to dispense not only with structural mutations but with universal grammar itself.
Morphology, Paradigms, and Periphrases, Hardback (October 2011)» View all books by John M. Anderson
Morphology, Paradigms, and Periphrases is concerned with the role of the lexicon, in particular its inflectional morphology, in mediating between syntax and phonology. It examines the expressive role of inflection and the notion of grammatical periphrasis and what these reveal about the substantive differences between verbs and nouns.
