520 3  "This landmark work in computational linguistics is of 
       great importance both theoretically and practically 
       because it shows that much of English grammar can be 
       learned by a simple program. The Acquisition of Syntactic 
       Knowledge investigates the central questions of human and 
       machine cognition: How do people learn language? How can 
       we get a machine to learn language? It first presents an 
       explicit computational model of language acquisition which
       can actually learn rules of English syntax given a 
       sequence of grammatical, but otherwise unprepared, 
       sentences. It shows that natural languages are designed to
       be easily learned and easily processed-an exciting 
       breakthrough from the point of view of artificial 
       intelligence and the design of expert systems because it 
       shows how extensive knowledge might be acquired 
       automatically, without outside intervention. 
       Computationally, the book demonstrates how constraints 
       that may be reasonably assumed to aid sentence processing 
       also aid language acquisition. Chapters in the book's 
       second part apply computational methods to the general 
       problem of developmental growth, particularly the thorny 
       problem of the interaction between innate genetic 
       endowment and environmental input, with the intent of 
       uncovering the constraints on the acquisition of syntactic
       knowledge. A number of "mini-theories" of learning are 
       incorporated in this study of syntax with results that 
       should appeal to a wide range of scholarly interests. 
       These include how lexical categories, phonological rule 
       systems, and phrase structure rules are learned; the role 
       of semantic-syntactic interaction in language acquisition;
       how a "parameter setting" model may be formalized as a 
       learning procedure; how multiple constraints (from syntax,
       thematic knowledge, or phrase structure) interact to aid 
       acquisition; how transformational-type rules may be 
       learned; and, the role of lexical ambiguity in language 
       acquisition. Robert Berwick is an assistant professor in 
       the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer 
       Science at MIT. The Acquisition of Syntactic Knowledge is 
       sixteenth in the Artificial Intelligence Series, edited by
       Patrick Winston and Michael Brady."
