Discourse structure” relates to the ways a language constructs a text. 22 Let the Words Be Written the study of these peoples and their languages. The disciplines of anthropology and, later, linguistics grew out of these experiences. Some of these missionaries and scholars made monumental contributions to our knowledge and understanding of culture and language. But most missionaries and translators did not have the training or sensitivity to cultural issues to be optimally effective in their work, and it became apparent that they needed more systematic training in language and culture.

Chomsky’s approach helped him conclude that the surface structure was not the only element there. At a deeper level there were semantic elements that could be better controlled than the surface forms of the language (Charles Taber, interview with author, 11 Oct. 2000). These basic semantic features underlay and actualized the surface structure, that is, the grammar and vocabulary of a language. Transformational or generative grammar also dealt with the analysis of lexical items by comparing their semantic elements with other words.
