Oh joy! Sometimes complex generative grammar is one of those things that you wished you didn’t know about….
This is reality for us for two hours of a Wednesday and Friday morning.
A grammar tree of an otherwise simple sentence..
Brad looking.. ‘happy’?
Dr Andy showing how its done in a New York accent…
Entertaining myself with Laura’s camera…
A poem, written in class a few weeks ago, by one of our classmates (who declines to be named… you know who you are…) I cut out a handful of more hilariously violent verses…
Learning Generative Grammar
A sunny day outside
A way to break down words
Trapped in sentences obscene
My mechanical pencil in my eye
For grammar, structure, rules, to me
My one desire, to feel the heat
Its not all bad – so far everyone still has their eyes, and their mechanical pencils.. a bit of brain-strain can be good…
