One of the early classics in generative grammar, published in the same year as Chomsky's Syntactic Structures, was a paper by Morris Halle (1957) " In Defense of the Number Two. " The present paper might be seen as a further attempt to substantiate the linguistic significance of " two, " this time in the ordinal sense of " second " rather than that of(More)
This article addresses the issue of how clitic elements come to occupy the positions they do in the surface forms of sentences. The empirical basis for the proposals here comes primarily from languages of the South Slavic family, but the treatment is intended to be more general. The background against which I would like to set this problem is the speciic(More)
True density is a fundamental and important property of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs). Using prediction methods to estimate the API true density can be very beneficial in pharmaceutical research and development, especially when experimental measurements cannot be made due to lack of material or sample handling restrictions. In this paper, two(More)
Developments in the study of language and cognition give increasing credibility to the view that human knowledge of natural language results from--and is made possible by--a biologically determined capacity specific both to this domain and to our species. The functional properties of this capacity develop along a regular maturational path, such that it(More)
In the early years of the development of a theory of generative grammar (roughly 1955 through the early 1970s), a striking difference between the research problems that characterized the emerging field and those that had occupied its predecessors was the precipitous decline of the study of morphology. The principles of word structure can be divided roughly(More)
A number of years ago, I presented an analysis of parts of the inflectional system of the Algonquian language Potawatomi (Anderson 1977), based on descriptive material of Charles Hockett (1948, 1966) and intended to illustrate some general points about the nature of inflectional systems. Essentially the same analysis appeared with some minor refinements in(More)
