PR7. The problem of formalization – how should the notation formally and explicitly represent language structure? 3. 1. Publications prior to FG0 Two of Simon Dik’s earliest writings provide helpful background to FG0. Firstly, Dik (1966: 406; cf. 1967b) indicates that his first disagreement with generative-transformational grammar concerned the strict division between grammar and semantics. For example, the words manner, many, manifest, manly, manifold and so forth all contain the string ‘man’ but such a purely formal observation “can never tell us which of these [recurrences] are grammatically significant and which are not”.
Alternatively, is this a procedural model? If so, of what procedure – the steps a computer simulation may go through in mimicking a language? That this same model gives rise to two different interpretations of Functional Grammar signals the beginning of the problem of psychological adequacy (PR6): how does such a standard apply to the model? ” Fortescue (1985: 113), on the other hand, writes that “FG seems to me interpretable as a model of real-time sentence production (this is of course not the only way it can be usefully envisaged)”.
