Connectionist Natural Language Processing pp Cite as. In this paper we present a connectionist model of movement in government-binding GB theory. The model is a collection of regularly connected groups of connectionist units using only two architectures: a two-dimensional map, used to model tree structures, and a one-dimensional row used to model constituent feature assignment. GB theory is a constraint-based theory of syntax. The constraints of GB are modeled by the maps, the rows and the connections between them. All the connections are regular—they depend only on the maps being linked, not on the individual units.

Government and binding GB , GBT is a theory of syntax and a phrase structure grammar in the tradition of transformational grammar developed principally by Noam Chomsky in the s. The name refers to two central subtheories of the theory: government , which is an abstract syntactic relation applicable, among other things, to the assignment of case ; and binding , which deals chiefly with the relationships between pronouns and the expressions with which they are co-referential. GB was the first theory to be based on the principles and parameters model of language, which also underlies the later developments of the minimalist program. The main application of the government relation concerns the assignment of case. Government is defined as follows:.

From Linguistic Inquiry Monographs. Noam Chomsky, more than any other researcher, has radically restructured the study of human language over the past several decades. While the study of government and binding is an outgrowth of Chomsky's earlier work in transformational grammar, it represents a significant shift in focus and a new direction of investigation into the fundamentals of linguistic theory. This monograph consolidates and extends this new approach. It serves as a concise introduction to government-binding theory, applies it to several new domains of empirical data, and proposes some revisions to the principles of the theory that lead to greater unification, descriptive scope, and explanatory depth.
