  • 48. Phrase structure rules • To regularize the structure of a constituent, • To make sure that a constituent is well-formed, • To form the deep structure of a sentence, • To create a sentence "template" for lexical items to be inserted. • For example, PP -> P NP • Reading: a preposition phrase (PP) (in this language) consists of a preposition (P) and a noun phrase (NP), with the preposition, the head, ordered prior to the NP, the complement to the preposition. 912年12月19日星期三
