Notional Theory of Syntactic Categories by John M. Anderson

Book 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.

Books By Author John M. Anderson

Substance of Language by 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.

Substance of Language Volume III: Phonology-Syntax Analogies by John M. Anderson Substance of Language Volume III: 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.

Old English Phonology by John M. Anderson Old English Phonology, Paperback (February 2010)

A detailed study of Old English, taking as its point of departure the 'standard theory' of generative phonology as developed by Chomsky and Halle.

Grammar of Names by John M. Anderson Grammar of Names, Paperback (January 2008)

The first systematic account of the syntax and semantics of names. Draws on work in philosophy and linguistics, in order to examine the distribution and subcategorization of names within a framework of syntactic categories, and to consider how the morphosyntactic behaviour of names connects to their semantic roles.
