Noam Chomsky's book Aspects of the Theory of Syntax developed the idea that each sentence in a language has two levels of representation: a deep structure and a surface structure.

The deep structure represents the core semantic relations of a sentence and is mapped onto the surface structure, which follows the phonological form of the sentence very closely, via. Since the early work of Montague, Boolean semantics and its subfield of generalized quantifier theory have become the model-theoretic foundation for the study of meaning in natural languages.

This book uses this framework to develop a new semantic theory of central linguistic phenomena involving coordination, plurality, and scope.

Transformational grammar is a theory of grammar that accounts for the constructions of a language by linguistic transformations and phrase structures.

Also known as transformational-generative grammar or T-G or TGG. Following the publication of Noam Chomsky 's book Syntactic Structures intransformational grammar dominated the field of Author: Richard Nordquist.

The salient points of Montague's approach are a model theoretic semantics, a systematic relation between syntax and semantics, and a fully explicit description of a fragment of natural language. His approach constituted a revolution: after the Chomskyan revolution that brought mathematical methods into syntax, now such methods were introduced.

This book provides an introduction to compositional semantics and to the syntax/semantics interface. It is rooted within the tradition of model theoretic semantics, and develops an explicit fragment of both the syntax and semantics of a rich portion of English.

Model-theoretic grammars, also known as constraint-based grammars, contrast with generative grammars in the way they define sets of sentences: they state constraints on syntactic structure rather than providing operations for generating syntactic objects.

[1] A generative grammar provides a set of operations such as rewriting, insertion, deletion, movement, or combination.

This paper presents a novel account of the syntax and semantics of questions, making use of the framework for linguistic description developed by Richard Montague ().Author: Shalom Lappin. Transformational grammar, also called Transformational-generative Grammar, a system of language analysis that recognizes the relationship among the various elements of a sentence and among the possible sentences of a language and uses processes or rules (some of which are called transformations) to express these relationships.

For example, transformational grammar. Aspects of the Theory of Syntax is a book on linguistics written by American linguist Noam Chomsky, first published in In Aspects, Chomsky presented a deeper, more extensive reformulation of transformational generative grammar (TGG), a new kind of syntactic theory that he had introduced in the s with the publication of his first book, Syntactic Structures.

In linguistics, transformational syntax is a derivational approach to syntax that developed from the extended standard theory of generative grammar originally proposed by Noam Chomsky in his books.

In this book we hope to acquaint the reader with the fundamentals of truth conditional model-theoretic semantics, and in particular with a version of this developed by Richard Montague in a series of papers published during the 's and early 's/5(22).

One also talks of model-theoretic semantics of natural languages, which is a way of describing the meanings of natural language sentences, not a way of giving them meanings. The connection between this semantics and model theory is a little indirect.

It lies. My proposals are in the tradition of referential, or model-theoretic, semantics descended from Frege, Tarski, Carnap (in his later works), and recent work of Kripke and others on semantic foundations of intensional logic.

In many ways the paper 'The Proper Pages: Linguistics - Linguistics - Transformational-generative grammar: The most significant development in linguistic theory and research in the 20th century was the rise of generative grammar, and, more especially, of transformational-generative grammar, or transformational grammar, as it came to be known.

Two versions of transformational grammar were put forward in the mids. Even though this book is awfully outdated now, and Andrew Radford's "Minimalist Syntax" already rendered this book kind of obsolete, it's a great read (and a lovely introduction to this wacky stuff Chomskians work with, specially if you want to know what happened before things went Minimal in Generative Grammar)/5.
