Generalized Phrase Structure Grammar provides the definitive exposition of the theory of grammar originally proposed by Gerald Gazdar and developed during half a dozen years' work with his colleagues Ewan Klein, Geoffrey Pullum, and Ivan Sag. This long-awaited book contains both detailed specifications of the theory and extensive illustrations of its power to describe large parts of English Cited by: This book provides an introduction to Generalised Phrase Structure Grammar (GPSG) and Head-driven Phrase Structure Grammar (HPSG), theories which have formed one of the main currents in syntactic theory since GPSG enjoyed considerable influence in the mid 80s, and HPSG has had a growing impact in recent by: "Generalized Phrase Structure Grammar" GPSG has become a major syntactic theory in linguistics and in this volume it receives comprehensive tutorial treatment.; The text assumes an introductory knowledge of syntactic theory and covers all the main constructs of the grammar. The term phrase structure grammar was originally introduced by Noam Chomsky as the term for grammar studied previously by Emil Post and Axel Thue (Post canonical systems).Some authors, however, reserve the term for more restricted grammars in the Chomsky hierarchy: context-sensitive grammars or context-free a broader sense, phrase structure grammars are also known as constituency.
