The structure of the human language school has been one of many major foci of the linguistic study of the final part century. This department of linguistics, widely referred to as Generative Grammar, is worried with the formula of explanatory formal money owed of linguistic phenomena with the ulterior objective of gaining perception into the houses of the 'language organ'. The sequence contains top of the range monographs and picked up volumes that handle such matters. the themes during this sequence variety from phonology to semantics, from syntax to details constitution, from mathematical linguistics to stories of the lexicon.

1(d)en 'to fight'; for 'weak' verbs with diphthongstems such as lei(d)en »to guide', lui(d)en 'to toll1, and wij(d)en 'to consecrate', which are all like duiden; and for houden/houwen 'to keep' (whose past tense hield(en) is irrelevant). Furthermore, it will account automatically and freely for the alternations in the irregular past tense of do en 'to do', which is deed/dee in singular, and deden/deeSn in plural; and similarly for the weakening-phenomena in paradigms of verbs with front-vowel stems, such as kneden 'to knead» (stem: kneed), as displayed in (32).
I will have occasion to review these works extensively below. 3. INPOBMAL ANALYSIS. 1. RETENTION OP SYLLABLE STRUCTURE. In this section, I will be concerned with an informal synchronic analysis of the alternations between forms such as displayed in the left-hand columns of (2) and (3), respectively, which I repeat here for convenience. » »herbs» ' old, attr. » Firstly, I will elaborate upon these data and similar ones, and formulate informal rules relating them, one of WEAKENING, and one of HOMDRGANIC GLIDE INSERTION.
In order to see whether the hypothesis of a more general application of WEAKENING in verb-forms can be extended to front vowel- and diphthong-verbs, let us first take a look at cases where, among the diphthongs, stem-final -d follows ui. These are slightly more complex than the braden-type, which is demonstrated by for instance the paradigm of duiden 'to indicate' (stem: duid) in (24). -d past duidde/ duidde/ duidden/ geduid/ Three of the four present tense forms are accounted for rather easily if we assume that the 'generalized' version of WEAKENING may also operate after diphthongs: as already stated in (21), it will delete d to give dui, duien, and duiend.
