Work Papers of the Summer Institute of Linguistics, University of North Dakota Session




From the introduction: "Research in generative grammar has uncovered two types of rules. Some have been found to operate in numerous totally unrelated languages and so they have been called universal rules. Others are limited to individual languages or language families and supply the more superficial aspects of word and sentence form of that particular language. These are called language-specific rules.

"In Section 2 of this paper I will illustrate how this theory can be helpful in explaining English sentences. Having done that, I will then argue the same for Koine Greek."
