Grammar without grammaticality : growth and limits of grammatical precision /

de Sampson, Geoffrey (aut.) ; Babarczy, Anna. (aut.)
Collation: 1 vol. (xv-341 p.) : ill., graph. ; 24 cm.Collection: Trends in linguistics. Studies and monographs ; Volume 254Édition: Berlin ; Boston : De Gruyter Mouton, cop. 2014.ISBN: 9783110289770 (rel); 3110289776 (rel).Contenu: Grammar is said to be about defining all and only the 'good' sentences of a language, implying that there are other, 'bad' sentences - but it is hard to pin those down. A century ago, grammarians did not think that way, and they were right: linguists can and should dispense with 'starred sentences'. Corpus data support a different model: individuals develop positive grammatical habits of growing refinement, but nothing is ever ruled out. The contrasting models entail contrasting pictures of human nature; our final chapter shows that grammatical theory is not value-neutral but has an ethical dimensionSujet RAMEAU: Grammaticality (Linguistics) | Grammar, Comparative and general | Grammaire comparée | Grammaticalité | Syntaxe | Langage Acquisition GrammaireThématique: Grammaire | Linguistique, languesThématique spécifique: Acquisition du langage | Théorie | Syntaxe | Linguistique historique et comparative | SémiotiqueType de document: OuvrageLangue du document: anglaisPays d'édition: Allemagne, Etats-Unis d'Amériques
