Anyway.... I hope you won't think this a cop-out, but I'm not sure how
to reply... I've been giving the things we've been debating about a lot
more thought than I ever have before, and I don't feel that my ideas in
this area are fully formed as yet,... I need a while to brood on them.
Sorry for bowing out... I certainly don't take your disagreement
personally though (I'm trying to say I didn't consider this an argument
because it wasn't emotional for me), I was just enjoying the debate. :)
I suspect a lot of my natural instinct in looking for deep structure and
then building layers on top is precisely because most of my training has
been in mathematics, and that's how mathematics in built. Perhaps the
approach that seems natural to me isn't the best way to approach
language. :)
