In Ideology and Linguistic Theory , two students of principals on both sides of the argument - Geoffrey J. Huck and John A. Goldsmith - reappraise the outcome of the Deep Structure Debate. They question the conclusions and the theoretical basis of both camps and propose that a reassessment of the period is overdue. Supplemented by interviews with four of the major participants in the debate - Ray Jackendoff, George Lakoff, Paul Postal and John Robert Ross - this book shows that the paradigm which has dominated American linguistics for the last twenty years has failed to settle some of the most basic questions about the nature of language.
