Grammatical Theory Vol. 2: From Transformational Grammar to Constraint-Based Approaches This book introduces formal grammar theories that play a role in current linguistic theorizing (Phrase Structure Grammar, Transformational Grammar/Government & Binding, Generalized Phrase Structure Grammar, Lexical Functional Grammar, Categorial Grammar, Head-Driven Phrase Structure Grammar, Construction Grammar, Tree Adjoining Grammar). The key assumptions are explained and it is shown how the respective theory treats arguments and adjuncts, the active/passive alternation, local reorderings, verb placement, and fronting of constituents over long distances. The analyses are explained with German as the object language. This is the second part of the book, which compares these approaches with respect to their predictions regarding language acquisition and psycholinguistic plausibility. …grammatical, from, grammar, constraint, based, approaches, Paranormal, Religion, Writing, Classics, Horror, Biography memoir, Music, Politics, Sociology, Science
