Deep Structure IV 204
Transformation/transformational/Lewis: There are several phrase markers: pn is the surface structure - "p1 represents the expression relative to the lexicon -" p1 is a basic structure (below the deep structure!) · - pn 1 and p2 are intermediary structures (these are the deep structure!) - "Transformation: local restriction of a phrase marker by adjacent phrase markers - "IV 205 transformation-free grammar: special case of transformation grammar: without limitation, the sequences consist of only one single phrase marker".
IV 205
"Generative Grammar/Lewis: here: what I call lexicon is the "baseline" lexicon, words in it can be introduced transformationally from the base to the surface "surface semantics: Here the meanings are solely determined by the basic structures. But the surface semantics interpretation rules are indistinguishable from global derivation conditions of the three levels: 1) Basic structures, 2) deep structures (intermediate level!), and 3) surface semantics.
IV 213
Deep structure/variables/Lewis: in the deep structure there are no more variables.
