Title: Generative Linguistics
Written By: FrederickJ.Newmeyer
Series Title: History of Linguistic Thought
Description:

Here together for the first time are all of Frederick J. Newmeyer's writings on the origins and development of generative grammar. Spanning a period of fifteen years, the essays in GENERATIVE LINGUISTICS address the nature of the "Chomskyan Revolution", the deep structure debates of the 1970s, The Chicago Linguistic Society, the structure of the field of linguistics and its consequences for women and the attempts to apply generative theory to second language aquisition. These articles, many of which have never been published before, will inevitably fan the flames of controversy still raging in the field. Newmeyer's audacious conclusions and his argument that generative semantics collapsed because it was empirically disproved challenge much current thinking.
