Transformational Grammar VI 386
Transformational grammar/Chomsky/Strawson: 1. lexical formativ: do names and general terms correspond, whose meaning is not somehow syntactically derived E.g. "singing", "red", "Mary" - 2. non-lexical: heterogeneous group E.g. "past" for past tense - there is no mechanical process to find the deep structure - "internal representation" not sufficient for the explanation of the skills - transformational grammar provides the basis for determining the
grammatical relation for the semantic interpretation of sentences.

VI 390
Grammar not circular, because it contains a lexicon - StrawsonVsChomsky: no general theory about the connections of grammatical categories and formatives - only a list of elements without principles of allocation - no transparency.
