Language Use and Acquisition

By Robert C. Berwick and Amy S. Weinberg

Overview

Author(s)

Summary

Written primarily from the perspective of computational theory, Grammatical Basis of Linguistic Performance presents a synthesis of some major recent developments in grammatical theory and its application to models of language performance. Its main thesis is that Chomsky's government-binding theory is a good foundation for models of both machine parsing and language learnability.

The book is eleventh in the series Current Studies in Linguistics.
