"Over the years, the author has become the historian par excellence of the generative movement in linguistics. . .very informative and detailed . . . brings together challenging essays on the 'Chomskyan revolution' and reappraises the debates that have now been going on for some thirty years. This makes this book particularly valuable to linguists."
-"The Journal of Indo-European Studies, April 1998
""Generative Linguistics belongs on the shelves of every library with holdings on generative grammar, and on the desks of everyone with a serious interest in the history of the field...."
Here together for the first time are all of Frederick J. Newmeyer's writings on the origins and development of generative grammar. Spanning a period of fifteen years the essays address the nature of the 'Chomskian Revolution', the deep structure debates of the 1970s and the attempts to apply generative theory to second language acquisition. Written by one of America's most prominent linguists, these articles, many of which have never been published before, provide a challenging reappraisal of the 'Chomskian Revolution' - the implications of which are still being debated some three decades on.
