Rick Grush's Guide to Gareth Evans' The Varieties of Reference.
This web site contains a guide to Evans' very significant and difficult book. The purpose of the guide is not to serve as a commentary, but to make a very difficult book easier to follow and understand. [This guide is based on an earlier version that I did in collaboration with Pete Mandik.]
Notes on Chapters 1 - 7 of Lillian Heageman's Introduction to Government and Binding Theory
[This is a PDF document of 50k, the document is 26 pages long. Because of the diagrams and frequent use of subscripts, etc., turning it into an HTML document was not something I wanted to do.]
These are notes which I used when teaching a course in Government and Binding theory at Washington University in St. Louis in the Fall of 1995. The notes follow the second edition of Haegeman's text very closely, and I think will be useful to anyone studying that text. I suppose that someone not using that text would be able to follow them and get the gist of the GB thing from them. But I should warn users about two things. First, there are a few minor errors in some of the X-bar diagrams (just 1, actually, that I know of), and some typos here and there. If a load of free time falls into my lap one day, or someone gives me a grant for this purpose, I may remedy this. Also, I am not a fan of GB, and so even though my notes follow the text closely, and present the theory in as clear a way as possible, there is the occasional editorial comment here and there by yours truly. Sorry. The course I taught was an intro to theories of syntax, and the first half covered GB (only up to chapter 7 though, for time reasons), and the second half was devoted to the much more reasonable Cognitive Linguistics theories. The syllabus for the class is available here. If I ever teach a full semester of GB, I will do notes for the entire text, but that probably won't be happening.
Web-Based materials for Philosophy 10: Introduction to Logic
This is a rather extensive site containing materials for use by students in Philosophy 10: Introduction to Logic, at UCSD. The materials are designed to be used in conjunction with the text Basic Sentential Logic and Informal Fallacies, by Rick Grush. Not that access to this site is password protected, in order to insure that enrolled students have quick access by limiting world-wide and bandwidth hogging. If you are not a student in UCSD's Phil 10 course, but would, for some legitimate reason, like to have access to these materials, send me an email and I'll give you the username and password, provided I don't think that UCSD students' access will be compromised.
