On the possible origin of lexicon-grammar tables: speculations from an unpublished manuscript of Zellig Harris

Abstract : Abstract In this report, assumptions are presented as for the origin of lexicon-grammar tables. The speculation was made possible by virtue of the discovery in M. Gross' archives of an unpublished manuscript that can be attributed to Z. Harris and some letters exchanged between them in the 1960s. It is suggested from the analysis of these writings that the idea of tabular representation of syntactic constructions (in columns) and lexical elements (in rows) find its source in this unpublished manuscript and that M. Gross would have benefited from that to construct his lexicon-grammar tables.
