Sample text

This has not always been my position; thirty or more years ago I published an English grammar which illustrated its points with almost entirely made-up sentences. I would not do that today. What is more, I believe that most linguists share my misgivings, and it is easy to find subjective evidence in support of this position. 2 Both our productive ability in making up sentences and our critical faculty in evaluating those sentences for naturalness are within the skills domain that is usually held to be informed by intuition; it is clear that they do not match up, and that – even in the behaviour of the same person over time – a sentence can be approved as natural and condemned as unnatural, both positions ascribed to intuition.

These points need to be explored carefully. First, the gain in generalisation, which is certainly a valid point as long as generalisation can be demonstrated, but here the informality of the received parts of speech weakens the argument considerably. No formal definition exists of the Intuition and annotation 53 class “N”; computer grammarians rely on an uneasy mix of received grammatical categories that cannot be represented in a computer, and discriminatory routines whose only virtue is that they come fairly close in practice to the received categories, thus reducing the amount of manual labour in matching them precisely.

6 Any single word form might occur in the gap, but it should be noted that the collocates are not restricted to occurrence in that position, but might be anywhere in a ten-word window around the phrase. The leading collocates, according to their t-scores, are listed in Table 1. I believe that anyone with normal fluency in English would find it difficult to scan this table without making tentative groupings of the words along various dimensions. 46 John Sinclair Table 1: Collocates of the phrase on the … of (Bank of English May 2002) 1-12 basis edge eve back part verge based side brink outskirts subject face 13-24 depends depending streets future issue grounds strength depend impact heels morning question 25-36 isle number effect surface banks floor island focus site night stroke advice 37-48 sale day corner cover focused comment report evidence outcome amount restrictions emphasis One grouping could go like this: 1.
