no knowledge required??[edit]

"Teach yourself linguistics" says that rewrite rules are perfectly explicit and require no knowledge at all of the language in which the phrase/sentence/whatever you're rewriting is in . However, wouldn't you need to be able to identify nouns, verbs, prepositional phrases etc. in that language? This would require quite a lot of knowledge - for example, a monolingual speaker of an unrelated language would have no way of knowing that "tent" is a noun and "went" is the preterite tense form of a verb. --Grammatical error 20:09, 12 July 2006 (UTC)

Separate article?[edit]

Does this article need to be separate from Phrase structure rule? W. P. Uzer (talk) 21:49, 9 March 2015 (UTC)
