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.
