Generative grammar

by PeterSOliphant on Feb 24, 2011

This dictionary is useful for reviewing conventional definitions mostly from the viewpoints of Chomsky's transformational grammar. The information is outdated now since newer theory, like construction grammar, which has replaced the old positivistic viewpoint, is not covered.
