Investigating substance-based grammar
The grammar of semantic and grammatical relations – An interview with John M. Anderson
The interview, guided by Andor’s questions, focuses on the development of Anderson’s work and its relation to contemporaneous developments in linguistics. The topics covered include the evolution of case grammar and its localist manifestation, and the generalization of the latter into a re-statement of “notional grammar”. Anderson has proposed a grammar, both syntax and phonology, based on mental substance, crucially perceptional substance and its metaphorical application in lexicon and syntax to “abstract” mental domains, as illustrated by localism. Concepts invoked here are dependency, structural analogy between syntactic and phonological representations, valency, ergativity, and (cognitive) salience; and central is concern with the expression of semantic and grammatical relations, whether by morphological case, adpositions or syntactic sequence.
