Example text

The changes of the order of symbols exemplified here have only in part a direct linguistic interpretation, but they are necessary if the representati on of a sentence on each level is to be a linear formula. Devices translating the representations of sentences from the morphemic level to the lower levels are not studied here. We assume that they can have the form of devices weakly equivalent (in Chomsky's sense) to finite transd�cers. 2. 5 REMARKS ON GENERATIVE POWER As to the weak generative power of the description as a whole, there are two possibilities : (1) The terminal language of the generative component is identi­ cal with the input language of the first transducer, and the output language of any transducer is identical with the input language of its successor in the sequence of transducing devices, down to the last (to the phonetic level), so that the terminal language of the whole description is context-free (cf.

The tectogrammatical level, corresponding to the level of the semantic structure of the sentence in the terms of some members of the Prague School (cf. Section 2. 1 . 1), has not yet been studied systematically and we can present here only a tentative sketch of its structure. There are many questions left open, which will have to be elaborated more thoroughly on the basis of de­ tailed empirical studies. In trying to provide a preliminary starting point for this elaboration, we apply two working principles, which are based on the fact that the tectogrammatical level is meant to correspond to Dokulil and Danes's meaning, not to content (cf.

Hockett, 1966, p. 229). , the first two members of the sequence of pushdown transducers) then strings excluded by the former component would not be excluded by the latter.
