Pregroup Grammar with Transformations

In this paper we develop a transformational framework that is built upon the recent notions in Pregroup Grammar [Lambek, 1999] from the framework of categorial grammars and early work by Harris [1968]. This is another attempt to converge the transformational grammars and categorial grammars for linguistic modeling. Elsewhere we have applied models for different aspects of grammatical modeling and language modeling; here, we describe a more general specification of a grammar for this purpose.
