1
Q

Who were the proponents of Generative Phonology (2)?

A
  1. Noam Chomsky

2. Morris Halle

2
Q

Define generative phonology (2).

A

Definition 1: The application of principles of generative (or transformational) grammar to phonology.

Definition 2: How phonology begins in the initial stages of an individual.

3
Q

What did pregenerative theories analyze?

A

Previous theories analyzed phonetic and phonemic levels through actual speech productions (classification/characteristics)

4
Q

Describe the “big idea” behind generative grammar.

A

The “big idea” behidn generative grammar is trying to distinguish between what the child is actually saying (the speech production/phonetic production) versus the planning aspect (what is going on before they say it).

5
Q

What type of form were pregenerative theories such as DFT?

A

The pregenerative theories were surface forms (surface level representations).

6
Q

Define surface level representation (2).

A

Definition 1: A phonetic sequence of units that has characteristic features.

Definition 2: Anything a child is saying (phonetic production/speech sounds) or what we see and hear on the surface - our articulation speech sounds.

7
Q

Define phonetic sequence (1).

A

Refers to surface level representations. The clinician is transcribing what he hears; it’s what the patient produces.

8
Q

How does generative phonology differ from distinctive feature theory?

A
  1. Generative phonology takes things down to a deeper level. It starts looking at speech and phonology before sounds are uttered/produced.
  2. Try to figure out other differences and e-mail it to Dr. Gregg.
9
Q

How did generative phonologists feel about Distinctive Feature Theory?

A

They felt that Distinctive Feature Theory was good in that it classified speech sounds but it didn’t tell us about the process of planning to produce; it just talked about producing.

10
Q

List the two levels of representation generative phonology assumes.

A
  1. Phonological representation

2. Phonetic representation
