Attribute-value logic and the theory of grammar

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


Because of the ease of their implementations, attribute-value based theories of grammar are becoming increasingly popular in theoretical linguistics as an alternative to transformational accounts, as well as in computational linguistics. Mark Johnson provides a formal analysis of attribute-value structures, of their use in a theory of grammar, of the representation of grammatical relations in such theories of grammar, and the implications of different representations. A classical treatment of disjunction and negation is also included.
