#5183. なぜ「文法の謎」があるのか? [sobokunagimon][grammar]

 Calude and Bauer による Mysteries of English Grammar: A Guide to Complexities of the English Language という本の序章に,"Why are there grammatical mysteries?" という1節がある.言語学者の観点からみて「文法の謎」には4種類のあり方が認められるという.
(7--8)

 ・ We don't know what is going on; perhaps we are unable to determine any regular pattern --- things are messy; perhaps we can see some regularities, but do not understand what drives the patterns we find; perhaps we just do not yet know what the relevant patterns are. If there are genuinely no patterns, the system is presumably unknowable, so this is a situation we do not expect to f ind, and do not want to find. In such cases, we must try to find something that makes it in principle possible to learn the grammar. There is a big difference between the unknown and the unknowable.
 ・ We know what is going on, but it does not seem to be predictable. This might be because speakers can manipulate the patterns in subtle ways that we cannot fully discern.
 ・ We know what is going on, but we do not know how the mind determines what will actually be said.
 ・ We know more or less what is going on, but we do not know how to successfully capture the patterns we see within a neat theoretical framework (a grammatical model).


 それぞれにタイトルをつけるとすれば,(1) まったく手をつけられない謎,(2) 予測不可能という意味での謎,(3) 心の働きに関する謎,(4) 理論的にうまく説明できないという意味での謎,となろうか.
