Abstract

<b>For sale in all countries except Japan. For customers in Japan: please contact Yushodo Co.</b><br />The general aim of the Senshu University Project <i>The Development of the Anglo-Saxon Language and Linguistic Universals</i> is investigation of structural characteristics common to the Germanic languages, such as English, German and Norwegian, and of works on and in the tradition of Generative Grammar founded by Noam Chomsky in the 1950s. The central idea of Generative Grammar, that the nature of natural-language syntax can be captured by a finite set of rules which are able to produce an infinite set of well-formed structures has been highly evaluated and influential even in related fields such as biolinguistics, philosophy, psychology and computer science.<i> Noam Chomsky and Language Descriptions</i> is a collection of articles that focus on the earliest but essential linguistic theory proposed by Noam Chomsky and articles that discuss specific topics pertaining to the study Germanic languages, in particular English and German. It is divided into two parts: Part 1. Genesis of Generative Grammar; and Part 2. Current Issues in Language Descriptions. The present book will be of general interest to linguists who seek to understand the original idea of Generative Grammar and nature of the Germanic languages.

Subjects: English linguistics; Germanic linguistics; Generative linguistics; Historical linguistics
