Summary
"Radical Construction Grammar presents a critique of syntactic theory and argumentation, and offers a genuinely new approach to syntax based on the fact of grammatical diversity. Recent syntactic theories are essentially formal models for the representation of grammatical knowledge, and posit complex syntactic structures in the analysis of sentences. The result has been an endless cycle of new and revised theories of syntactic representation."--Jacket
