Other features include: a balanced insight into basic linguistic theory; the application of basic analytical skills to a wide range of data; and simple, clear explanations of all technical concepts
Language networks : the new word grammar by Richard A Hudson( )

19 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 1,574 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Professor Hudson presents a new theory of how we learn and use language, the New Word Grammar. This theory uses elementary principles of cognitive psychology to explain the structures and processes of language, and is put to work in a series of extended explorations of morphology, syntax, semantics, and sociolinguistics. Every step of the argument and exposition is illustrated with examples ranging from the simple to the most challenging."--Jacket
Word grammar : new perspectives on a theory of language structure by Kensei Sugayama( )

17 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 1,411 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is an introduction to Word Grammar, a theory of language structure founded and developed by Richard Hudson. In this theory, language is a cognitive network - a network of concepts, words and meanings containing all the elements of a linguistic analysis. The theory of language is therefore embedded in a theory of knowledge, in which there are no boundaries between one form of knowledge and any other."--Jacket

Arguments for a non-transformational grammar by Richard A Hudson( Book )

27 editions published between 1976 and 1985 in English and Japanese and held by 720 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For the past decade, the dominant transformational theory of syntax has produced the most interesting insights into syntactic properties. Over the same period another theory, systemic grammar, has been developed very quietly as an alternative to the transformational model. In this work Richard A. Hudson outlines "daughter-dependency theory," which is derived from systemic grammar, and offers empirical reasons for preferring it to any version of transformational grammar. The goal of daughter-dependency theory is the same as that of Chomskyan transformational grammar--to generate syntactic structures for all (and only) syntactically well-formed sentences that would relate to both the phonological and the semantic structures of the sentences. However, unlike transformational grammars, those based on daughter-dependency theory generate a single syntactic structure for each sentence. This structure incorporates all the kinds of information that are spread, in a transformational grammar, over to a series of structures (deep, surface, and intermediate). Instead of the combination of phrase-structure rules and transformations found in transformational grammars, daughter-dependency grammars contain rules with the following functions: classification, dependency-marking, or ordering. Hudson's arguments for a non-transformational grammar stress the capacity of daughter-dependency theory to reflect the facts of language structure and to capture generalizations that transformational models miss. An attraction of Hudson's theory is that the syntax is more concrete, with no abstract underlying elements. In the appendixes, the author outlines a partial grammar for English and a small lexicon and distinguishes his theory from standard dependency theory. --From publisher's description
An introduction to word grammar by Richard A Hudson( )

17 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 552 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Word grammar is a theory of language structure and is based on the assumption that language, and indeed the whole of knowledge, is a network, and that virtually all of knowledge is learned. It combines the psychological insights of cognitive linguistics with the rigour of more formal theories. This textbook spans a broad range of topics from prototypes, activation and default inheritance to the details of syntactic, morphological and semantic structure. It introduces elementary ideas from cognitive science and uses them to explain the structure of language including a survey of English grammar"--
