TOWARDS A LOGICAL DE-CONSTRUCTION OF GRAMMAR

Posted On Oct 17 2011 by

Any interpretation of language cannot escape the logical approach. The contrast between the logical perspective and the linguistic one should no longer exist, taking into account the existence of a rationalist grammar, supported by the transformational-generative syntax, thus the generative semantic suggested a natural logic of language. This paper deals with a postmodern grammar which has reshaped its ways of analysing words and sentences, trying to find a logical pattern, mainly based on a matter of meaning-related rules from Rudolph Carnap to Noam Chomsky.
