This paper presents the results of research undertaken
in order to examine two major subjects in the field of syntactic
theory with application to English.
The one subject concerns problems of procedure which have
arisen from recent publications in analysing and presenting the
syntax of English and other natural languages. The other
concerns the relationship of certain artificial languages of
symbolic logic with the syntax of English, and ensuing general
implications concerning the nature of the artificial languages,
Both studies were undertaken with the aim of clarifying
procedures for the classification of morphemes into class variables
and constants, and of clarifying formation and transformation rules
which can be applied to then. It is hoped that the results will
provide not only knowledge of the structure of English, but some
information upon syntactic theory in general. It Is also hoped
that they will provide some preliminary resolution of problems in
the development of a calculus of English for machine use.
