Sample text

6c To Bill, he won't give any money. The general constraint which blocks movement of an element across if will be taken to be part of the native speaker's internal grammar. A descriptively adequate grammar will not only describe the linguistic data, but it will contain the general principles and processes that enable the native speaker to produce and interpret sentences in his language and decide on the acceptability of sentences. Such a grammar is an explicit formulation of the tacit linguistic knowledge of the native speaker, his internal grammar.

We say that a grammar reaches descriptive adequacy if, in addition to describing the data, it provides an account for the native speaker's intuitions. Let us consider some examples. We have proposed that (3c) and (3d) could be generated by a process that moves the direct object leftward to the begin­ ning of the sentence. Now consider the examples in (4), which are not ac­ ceptable (hence the asterisk): 4a "Detective stories, I wonder if he likes. 4b "Where do you wonder if he lives? To account for the unacceptability of (4a) we might propose that the process which moves the direct object in (3c) must be constrained: the direct object cannot move across if.

This finite system of principles is what we referred to loosely above as . the internal grammar of the language. The generative linguist will try to render explicit the finite system of principles that make up the native speaker's competence. In our example, the principle which prohibits moving elements across if will be able to account for the unacceptability of (4) and (5). 3 3. 1 Knowledge of Language The Poverty of the Stimulus A speaker's knowledge of a language is largely unconscious. It is form ally represented as a grammar.
