Final presling

  1. 1. CONTENT
  2. 2. Syntax is autonomous!
  3. 3. Many people disagreed
  4. 4. No real evidence!
  5. 5. Nobody believes it, anyway!
  6. 6. Unification Grammars
  7. 7. Don’t need this structure
  8. 8. Agreement and tense
  9. 9. Agreement is just Unification
  10. 10. Matching is basic to thinking, maybe
  11. 11. Tense is part of CONTENT (Meaning)
  12. 12. Content is important
  13. 13. Meaning and grammar work together
  14. 14. CONTENT is unified through the head
  15. 15. V onto VP and so on
  16. 16. Notice the structure-sharing
  17. 17. [sees us] – what about the SEER?
  18. 18. The squared numbers …
  19. 19. … a shortcut to show structure-sharing
  20. 20. [he sees us]
  21. 21. Notice the CONT shared up the head
  22. 22. V to VP to VP(S)
  23. 23. Look at CONT
  24. 24. Structure-sharing is dynamic
  25. 25. It looks like it’s MOVING up the tree
  26. 26. The ILLUSION of movement
  27. 27. Shut up! It’s REALLY movement!!
  28. 28. No, maybe it’s just an ILLUSION
  29. 29. Maybe we don’t need this structure
  30. 30. Illusion of move ment
  31. 31. Remember movement is important
  32. 32. Important to TRANSFORMATIONAL grammar
  33. 33. No movement, no transformations
  34. 34. Simple sentence
  35. 35. Now move [Taro] • Taro, I like • What does that mean? • I hate Ichiro, but I like Taro • Or I love Hanako, but I only like Taro
  36. 36. Unification Grammars don’t move
  37. 37. [I like]
  38. 38. [I like] – no Complement
  39. 39. [I like]
  40. 40. [I like] – the subject is there, but no object
  41. 41. [I like] but the NP stays in COMPS
  42. 42. [I like] – what about COMPS NP?
  43. 43. Deletion rule
  44. 44. Maybe you delete and store it somewhere else
  45. 45. DELETED – this is usually called NONLOCAL
  46. 46. The deleted information is carried up the tree
  47. 47. Structure-sharing
  48. 48. The APPEARANCE of movement
  49. 49. And it can be cancelled in these kinds of structures
  50. 50. I don’t like this kind of explanation
  51. 51. Why do you need the deletion rule?
  52. 52. Why not keep the NP in COMPS
  53. 53. It seems easier
  54. 54. But, anyway, we don’t need movement
  55. 55. Anyway …
  56. 56. Movement
  57. 57. No movement
