An Automodular View of English Grammar is a far-reaching extension of Jerry Sadock’s (2012) Modular Architecture of Grammar, Cambridge University Press, and presents a multi-modular view of English syntax. It covers major syntactic phenomena of English such as passivization, raising, control, and unbounded dependencies. The automodular grammar consists of the lexicon and the five autonomous modules, which are each formalized as phrase structure grammar with their own primitives and are connected by the lexicon and the default correspondences between them.

「上野氏の著書は、Automodular Grammar の枠組みで、英語の統語現象を包括的に扱った初めての本格的な研究書です。(中略)多岐にわたる統語現象を扱うスコープの広さとそれぞれの現象についての議論の精緻さから、その完成度が高く評価され、他の理論的枠組みにも大きな影響を与えうる労作として、本学会の学会賞にふさわしいと判断されました。」(「日本英語学会ニューズレター」2016年2月23日)

「シカゴ大学の J. Sadock が主唱する Automodular Grammar (AMG)に基づいて英語の主要現象を包括的に扱った力作である。」中島平三(『英語年鑑 <2015年版>』)


Excerpts from the Foreword

An Automodular View of English Grammar is an impressively careful, farranging,
and original contribution to the study of modular grammar. It contains
lessons that would be valuable to any linguistic researcher and it deserves a wide
