Abstract:

The lexical insertion process for generative transformational grammars is described. Detailed descriptions of many of the concepts in transformational theory are given. These include the notions of complex symbol, syntactic feature particularly contextual feature, redundancy rule, tests for pairs of complex symbols, and change operations that may be applied to complex symbols. Because of the general interpretation of redundancy rules, we define a new complex symbol test known as compatibility. This test replaces the old notion of nondistinctness. The form of a lexicon suitable for use with a generative grammar is specified. Author
