About "The SSORE of Writing & Editing"

Syntax and semantics, orthography and readability elements, or The SSORE of Writing & Editing, is a grammatical approach that McIntoshLinguistics uses to address recurring patterns, and different kinds of structures in literary manuscripts.

… [W]ords form phrases, grammatical functions emerge from morphological and phrasal structure, and patterns of phrases evoke a complex meaning.

The premise

"A natural language utterance is rich in structures of different kinds: sounds form recurring patterns and morphemes, words form phrases, grammatical functions emerge from morphological and phrasal structure, and patterns of phrases evoke a complex meaning." (Mary Dalrymple, John Lamping, Fernando Pereira, and Vijay Saraswat, "Overview and Introduction." Semantics and Syntax in Lexical Functional Grammar: The Resource Logic Approach, ed. by Mary Dalrymple. The MIT Press, 1999)

The objective

To provide a list of the recurring patterns and different kinds of structures in a literary manuscript according to the framework for examining both morphological structures and syntactic structures in Lexical-Function Grammar.
