IV 191ff
Categorical Grammar/Adjukiewicz/Lewis: (1950s): Categories: names, sentences, generic names - context-free phrase structure rules - lexicon alone specified - proper names are distinguished from NP - both may be a subject, but only names may be object - allows undue iteration of modal operators - Vs: transformational grammar: new: simple phrase structure grammar as a basis, eliminates the weaknesses.
IV 194
Phrase structure grammar/Lewis: Meaning: is then determined through the base structure (phrase structure grammar) - i.e. the transformational component is irrelevant to the semantics.
