Transformational Grammar of Arabic. Nouns, Verbs, Particles

Abstract : Lexicon-Grammar is a version of Zellig Harris' grammars. This version tends towards completeness in the analysis of language facts and remains transformational in the generation of these facts. This book is part of this framework. It opens, as a prologue, with the notion of syntactic derivation and ends, as an epilogue, with the notion of frozenness. The two notions are characteristic of natural languages. Nevertheless, what is proposed in the three chapters of the book focuses on the notions of support verb, nominal predicate and multiword conjunctions. Traditional Arabic grammar is nonetheless present in some of its hypotheses and analytical choices. We believe that the different grammars of a language suffer neither confusion nor rupture. This book is dedicated to the memory of Maurice Gross.
