Abstract : Various orders of application of transformations have been considered in transformational grammar, ranging from unorder to cyclical orders involving notions of 'lowest sentence' and of numerical indices on depth of embedding. The general theory of transformational grammar does not yet offer a uniform set of 'traffic rules' which are accepted by most linguists. Thus, in designing a model of transformational grammar, it seems advisable to allow the specification of the order and point of application of transformations to be a proper part of the grammar. In this paper we present a simple control language designed to be used by linguists for this specification. (Author)
