Along with the well-formedness notion, the phonological theory is fundamentally devoted to adequately describing the mental representation and basic units of human speech sounds and explaining how the sound patterns of all languages are underlyingly the same and superficially different (cf.
In other words, the rule systems map semantic analyses of sentences onto syntactic surface structures, he says, and because they also provide a formal definition of well-formedness of sentences, they are grammars in the accepted sense of the term.
Sometimes consistency concept is misused for expressing well-formedness of IS models.
Linguistic convention may play a limited role in determining the boundaries of named color categories, the color naming systems of the world's languages correspond to maxima or near-maxima in well-formedness, whereas color naming systems of the world's languages are nearoptimal (linguistic convention may play some role in selecting from among the class of well-formed color naming systems).
As mentioned above, we analyzed the grouping as a function of the Grouping Well-Formedness Rules (GWFR) and the Grouping Preference Rules (GPR) defined by Lerdahl & Jackendoff (see Table 1).
Lastly, two well-formedness principles, presented in (8a) and (8b), resolve any uncertainties or deficiencies in the assignment of grammatical functions.
(c) Inclusiveness: The constraint hierarchy evaluates a set of candidate analyses that are admitted by very general considerations of structural well-formedness.
Marantz explains the relationship between the structures of generative linguistic theory, and three fundamental insights into the structure of language on which all contemporary linguistic theories are built: (i) the meanings of linguistic expressions are built up recursively from the meanings of the constituents of the expressions; (ii) phonological well-formedness at all levels of analysis requires reference to syntactic structure, i.e., to morphemes and their combination; and (iii) semantic and phonological interpretation are negotiated within local structural domains.
Therefore, the well-formedness of an expression cannot be determined by whether it can be generated by rules; it is instead determined by whether it is categorized by a schema.
In such cases, error correction reflects children's capacity to reflect on and manipulate grammatical well-formedness" (p.
With the idea that recognizing meter may be one part of our ability to synchronize our attention to regularly recurring events, London emphasizes culture and performance over theory in such topics as meter as a kind of attentional behavior, research for temporal perception and its relevance for theories of musical meter, the ground rules of meter-rhythm interactions, metric representations and metric "well-formedness," problems, metric flux (using Beethoven's Fifth as an example), non-isochronous meters, NI-meters in theory and practice, and a many-meters hypothesis.
