In this paper, we will present a ra~her simplified description o£ an algorithm for transformationalanalysls (decomposition) of English sentences, our purpose here is not to discuss the transformational theoryj the full details of the theoretical formulations of the algo- rlthmj or of the gran~ar. Ratherj we will present a set of examples of the decomposition and some discussion of them with the hope that it will give enough insight into the capability of the algorlthm and indicate to some extent the power of transformational analysis. •This work was carried out in the Transformations and Discourse Analysis Projectj University of Pennsylvania, sponsored by the National Science Foundation. 1.0 Here, we will present a rather simplified description of an algo- rithm for transformational ana...
