    About this book Introduction But one serious obstacle to applications of grammars is that formal language theory traditionally classifies grammars according to their weak generative capacity (what sets of strings they generate) and tends to ignore strong generative capacity (what sets of structural descriptions they generate) even though the. Hudson's strong 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 important attraction of Hudson's theory is that the syntax is more concrete, with no abstract underlying elements.

The concept of “strong generative capacity” (SGC) of a linguistic formalism was introduced by Chomsky in the early sixties in order to characterize descriptive capacity.

However, the original definition proposed by Chomsky turned out to be unusable, especially when one wished to compare the SGC of different types of formalisms. The concept of "strong generative capacity" (SGC) of a linguistic formalism was introduced by Chomsky in the early sixties in order to characterize descriptive capacity.

However, the original definition proposed by Chomsky turned out to be unusable, especially when one wished to compare the SGC of different types of formalisms.

This book provides for the first time a rigorous and useful. The book begins by reviewing classical definitions of weak and strong generative capacity.

An in-depth discussion of how abstract interpretation domains are defined in theory-neutral set-theoretical terms is presented. The book also explains how interpretation domains are defined for labeled constituency, dependency, endocentricity, and linking Cited by: ISBN: X OCLC Number: Description: viii, pages ; 24 cm.

It aims to pinpoint just why lexical-functional grammars are more powerful than government-binding grammars. Section 4 concludes with some speculations about the precise formal characteriza.

Weak generative capacity refers to the kind of languages a formalism can characterise purely in terms of their string set — that is, in terms of the strings of items which are members of the generative capacity is a less clear-cut notion which refers not just to strings but also to structures.

Synonyms for generative capacity include prolificacy, abundance, copiousness, fecundity, fruitfulness, gravidity, luxuriance, plentifulness, potency and pregnancy.

What is primary is strong, not weak, generative capacity: the proper object of syntactic inquiry is not merely to offer one of many possible extensionally correct derivations of an infinite set of strings (an E-language), but instead an I-language, i.e. the correct intensional characterization of the internal recursive procedure that is.

Strong Generative Capacity: The Semantics of Linguistic Formalism (Volume ) (Lecture Notes) Jun 1, Chomsky proposes a reformulation of the theory of transformational generative grammar that takes recent developments in the descriptive analysis of particular languages into ing in the mid-fifties and emanating largely form MIT, an approach was developed to linguistic theory and to the study of the structure of particular languages that diverges in many respects from modern 3/5(5).

In this paper, we continue our investigation of the strong generative capacity of proof theoretical grammars using natural deduction proof trees as the structures that grammars assign to their languages.

We review the results that were previously obtained for associative Lambek grammars and extend the methods used there to non-associative. of natural languages. The first part of the book (64 pages) characterizes the strong generative capacity of context-free grammars in logical terms.

From the perspective of the weak generative capacity of the system, the critical observation is that there is an indefinite number of unexperienced strings which the speaker of a language can produce, understand, and. Hence the term of “strong generative capacity” taken from formal grammars.
