    The Grammatical Basis of Linguistic Performance

    Language Use and Acquisition

    Robert C. Berwick and Amy S. Weinberg

    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.
