Main article: Relational grammar An alternative model of syntax based on the idea that notions like subject, direct object, and indirect object play a primary role in grammar. It was proposed by Chomsky in This sets out a series of types of formal grammars with increasing expressive power. Among the simplest types are the regular grammars type 3 ; Chomsky claims that these are not adequate as models for human language, because of the allowance of the center-embedding of strings within strings, in all natural human languages.

At a higher level of complexity are the context-free grammars type 2. The derivation of a sentence by such a grammar can be depicted as a derivation tree. Linguists working within generative grammar often view such trees as a primary object of study. According to this view, a sentence is not merely a string of words. Instead, adjacent words are combined into constituents, which can then be further combined with other words or constituents to create a hierarchical tree-structure.

The derivation of a simple tree-structure for the sentence "the dog ate the bone" proceeds as follows. The determiner the and noun dog combine to create the noun phrase the dog.

A second noun phrase the bone is created with determiner the and noun bone. The verb ate combines with the second noun phrase, the bone, to create the verb phrase ate the bone. Finally, the first noun phrase, the dog, combines with the verb phrase, ate the bone, to complete the sentence: the dog ate the bone. The following tree diagram illustrates this derivation and the resulting structure: Such a tree diagram is also called a phrase marker. They can be represented more conveniently in text form, though the result is less easy to read ; in this format the above sentence would be rendered as: [S [NP [D The ] [N dog ] ] [VP [V ate ] [NP [D the ] [N bone ] ] ] ] Chomsky has argued that phrase structure grammars are also inadequate for describing natural languages, and formulated the more complex system of transformational grammar.

This led to the establishment of the poverty of the stimulus argument. This claim is not based on research or the general scientific understanding of how the brain works. He however believes it to be a case where the real value of the research is only understood later on, as it was with Galileo.


Gramática generativa

Carnie , 03 descreve como isso acontece: "there is some set of neurons in my head firing madly away that allows me to sit here and produce this set of letters, and there is some other set of neurons in your head firing away that allows you translate these squiggles into coherent ideas and thoughts. Conforme podemos constatar ainda com Carnie: "As noted above, Language seems to be both human-specific and pervasive across the species. All humans, unless they have some kind of physical impairment, seem to have Language as we know it. Additionally, research from neurolinguistics seems to point towards certain parts of brain being linked to specific linguistic functions.
