Draw the Syntactic Structure
In our example sentence:
For the most part, we can use the constituents as identified in the tests. But we must insert the following non-branching nodes:
- The tests for phrasal categories may lead to a double classification for some words or word groups. In this case, there must be guidelines of how to reflect this in the tree structure.
- Here, we assume that doubly classified words or word groups will give rise to non-branching nodes whose only daughter is the head.
- Note: This assumption is shared in Government and Binding Theory. In Head-driven Phrase Structure Grammar this type of non-branching nodes is often avoided.
