The View from building 20 : essays in linguistics in honor of Sylvain Bromberger by Kenneth L Hale( )

23 editions published between 1993 and 1996 in English and held by 1,555 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These seven original essays commissioned in tribute to MIT Philosophy Professor Sylvain Bromberger present some of the most exciting research being conducted today in linguistics. Each essay is informed by Bromberger's ongoing inquiry into how we "come to know that there are things in the world that we don't know." Included in the collection is the edited version of Noam Chomsky's minimalist paper
Prolegomenon to a theory of argument structure by Kenneth L Hale( )

19 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1,419 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work is the culmination of an eighteen-year collaboration between Ken Hale and Samuel Jay Keyser on the study of the syntax of lexical items. It examines the hypothesis that the behavior of lexical items may be explained in terms of a very small number of very simple principles. In particular, a lexical item is assumed to project a syntactic configuration defined over just two relations, complement and specifier, where these configurations are constrained to preclude iteration and to permit only binary branching. The work examines this hypothesis by methodically looking at a variety of constructions in English and other languages
Rule Generalization and Optionality in Language Change by Samuel Jay Keyser( )

11 editions published between 1985 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 709 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The architecture of the human language faculty has been one of the main foci of the linguistic research of the last half century. This branch of linguistics, broadly known as Generative Grammar, is concerned with the formulation of explanatory formal accounts of linguistic phenomena with the ulterior goal of gaining insight into the properties of the 'language organ'. The series comprises high quality monographs and collected volumes that address such issues. The topics in this series range from phonology to semantics, from syntax to information structure, from mathematical linguistics to stud

The mental life of modernism : why poetry, painting, and music changed at the turn of the twentieth century by Samuel Jay Keyser( Book )

13 editions published between 2019 and 2020 in English and Undetermined and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Most accounts of Modernism take the view that the movement's characteristic shifts--abstraction in painting, atonality in music, free verse in poetry--are cultural. This book puts a different account on the table. It argues that Modernism is fundamentally a cognitive shift, one in which the brain comes up against its own limitations. The shifts that characterize Modernism are essentially workarounds, the consequences of abandoning shared rule systems. To understand this, consider that a speaker and a hearer are able to converse only because they share the same set of internalized rules; namely, the grammar of the language they are speaking. Keyser's book takes the view that the same relationship exists between an artist and his/her audience. The artwork is created/perceived because the artist/audience share the same set of rules. It demonstrates in some detail what these shared rules look like and then tries to account for the changes that occurred when those rules were set aside by artists and, by necessity therefore, their audiences. This phenomenon is not new. This book argues that it is precisely the same phenomenon that led to the fundamental shift in scientific research initiated in the 17th century as a result of the work of Sir Isaac Newton. In other words, modernism and the scientific revolution are both shifts/workarounds occasioned by the brain coming up against its natural limitations"--

Syntactic analysis by Samuel Jay Keyser( Book )

1 edition published in 1967 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Conditions that an adequate structural description must meet in order to reflect the relationships implied by a sentence are discussed. A class of transformational grammars is motivated on the basis of these conditions and exemplified by treating a specific, precisely defined grammar. An algorithm for determining all of the structural descriptions assigned to a given sentence by an arbitrary member of this class of grammars is given, and sample sentences are analyzed by means of computer program implementation of the algorithm. Other approaches to transformational analysis are reviewed. The role of an analysis procedure in a theory of perception is then examined, and characteristics of an analysis procedure are considered to determine its suitability as a perceptual model. (Author)
