Individual differences in language ability and language behavior by Charles J Fillmore( Book )

Individual Differences in Language Ability and Language Behavior is a collection of papers that discusses differences at the center of the study of language, specifically, on the various dimensions of linguistic ability and behavior along which individuals can differ from each other. Papers also review the development of techniques that measure these dimensions in relation to biological, psychological, and cultural parameters. Some papers review individual differences in language study in terms of different perspectives: that of a psychometrician's, of an individualistic's vantage point, and o

In this paper, prepared for the April 1967 Texas symposium on linguistic universals, it is proposed that the grammatical notion "case" deserves a place in the base component of the grammar of every language. It is argued that past research has not led to valid insights on case relationships and that what is needed is a conception of base structure in which case relationships are primitive terms of the theory and in which such concepts as "subject" and "direct object" are missing. The latter are regarded as proper only to the surface structure of some (but possibly not all) languages. Basic to these arguments are two assumptions now taken for granted by generative grammarians--(1) the centrality of syntax, and (2) the importance of covert categories. The author proposes "that there are many semantically relevant syntactic realtionships involving nouns and the structures that contain them, that these relationships are in large part covert but are nevertheless empirically discoverable, that they form a specific finite set, and that observations made about them will turn out to have considerable cross-linguistic validity." he refers to these as "case" relationships and the grammar proposed and outlined here is "case grammar." the substantive modification to the theory of transformational grammar which he proposes amounts to a reintroduction of the "conceptual framework" interpretation of case systems but with a clearer understanding of the difference between deep and surface structure. The sentence in its basic structure consists of a verb and one or more noun phrases, each associated with the verb in a particular case relationship. The "explanatory" use of this framework resides in the necessary claim that, although there can be compound instances of a single case (through noun phrase conjunction), each case relationship occurs only once in a simple sentence. This document will appear in "proceedings of the Texas symposium on language universals, April 13-15, 1967," emmon bach and robert harms, editors, holt, rinehart and winston. (jd)

Toward a modern theory of case by Charles J Fillmore( Book )

8 editions published between 1966 and 1968 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The paper questions the adequacy of chomsky's proposals for formally reconstructing the distinction between grammatical categories and grammatical functions. The deep structure validity of the notions "subject" and "object" is also questioned. The writer proposes to recognize, instead, various introduced noun phrases suggestive of the traditional notion of "cases," each, in english, beginning with a preposition. The syntactic relationship of each of these types to the main verb of the sentence is defined with reference to the category under which it is introduced, having no direct connection with whatever eventual status it may have as subject or object. Thus, each simple sentence in a language is made up of a verb and a collection of nouns in various "cases," in the deep structure sense. In the surface structure, case distinctions are sometimes preserved, and sometimes not, depending on the language, the noun, or the idiosyncratic properties of certain governing words. (It)

On the notion of 'equivalent sentence structure' by Charles J Fillmore( Book )

4 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the development of a program for mechanizing translation, some problems would remain even when the morphemes and grammatical processes involved are reasonably equivalent in the two languages. Equivalent grammatical relation has to be defined because important structural similarities among sentences are found more often in their deep structure than in their surface structure. Thus, two sentences are equivalent if (1) the underlying simple sentences are translations of each other, (2) the relations between these underlying sentences and a portion of the resulting sentence are equivalent, and (3) the resulting sentences are translations of each other. However, strict equivalence among grammatical relations is not to be found. Disparities in sentence structure are illustrated with sentences from chinese, japanese, and english, and deep-seated systematic differences are found. (It)
