Example text

5 Again a clever design strategy comes to the fore. While the articles and determiners of English generally have a semantic function to perform and need to find representation in F/A structure, we also have an empty article available for just such an expressive exigency as the need to describe Sally in terms of her profession. In one usage, then, the indefinite singular article a(n) counts as a determiner for the purposes of syntax, but is not represented in F/A structure at all: (12) a(n) (empty article) syntax: Det F/A: nil The existence of these two purely formal syntactic elements allows us to express Sally’s carpenterhood as Sally is a carpenter, with (13) as the description of the expression at the syntactic level, and (14) as the simultaneous F/A description, both of which are completely well formed relative to their own grammars.

26 The interface The extension of Principle (1) to the phonological dimension will prevent the F/A structure CATS(EAT(MICE)) and a corresponding syntactic structure [S[NPcats][VPeat[NPmice]]] from having a phonological representation that begins with the sequence /dɔgz/ because the phonological value of cats is /kæts/. 2 Categorial redundancy There is obviously a good deal of redundancy between the category of ordinary transitive and intransitive verbs in syntax and F/A structure. Such redundancy can easily be captured in a system that radically separates syntactic and semantic combinatorics.

It should not be surprising, then, that most, perhaps all, verbs that belong to the semantic category Fpa can occur with clausal complements. If this observation is always true, then we can expand the generalization in (29) above to include both intransitive and transitive operators as follows: (48) Intermodular Default (English): If a lexeme is Fpψ in F/A and is V, N, or A in syntax, then it can occur in [ __ S′, …] in syntax. Functors belonging to the category Fpa 45 Here “ψ” is any string of a’s and p’s, including the empty string, and “…” is any set of syntactic constituent types, including the empty set.
