Speech sounds are sounds which are produced by the human vocal organs of speech.
Elements of language:
1. sounds –> phonology
2. grammar –> rules patterns –> morphology & syntax
3. meaning –> vocab –> semantics
Characteristics of language:
1. sounds (vocab)
Language is sounds basically
The IL-ilterate people : can speak, can’t write
The native speaker of the language agree to accept them (terms/symbols/meaning)

with limited (finite) rule can produce unlimited (infinite) number of sentences
ex. S + V + O + Adv

He has bought a book
5. a system of systems
rule –> sounds
rule –> morphemes/words
rule –> phrases
rule –> clauses

12. relative (equally complex)
There are no languages which are better than others.
Each language is good for its own society (native speakers)
1. Traditional Grammar / school grammar
2. Structural Grammar / modern grammar
3. Transformational Grammar
4. Transformational Generative Grammar
Traditional Grammar : (base of Latin)
It has weakness:
1. not consistent
e.g. the definition of noun (part of speech) is the name of a person, place, thing, animal.
Adjective is a word that modifies a noun (function)

3. normative / prescriptive (not descriptive)
– how language must be used
not how language is actually used
shall –> 1st person
will –> 2nd, 3rd person
Structural: is a term in linguistics referring to the analysis of language.
Linguistics features can be described in terms of structural and system (rules).
– Surface structure –> Performance
– Deep structure –> Competence
1. Surface structure
e.g. Mother went to Surabaya
Mother bought pizza
2. Deep structure
e.g. Pizza was bought by mother
Transformational Generative Grammar
– active passive
– relative pronouns
I give my mother flowers
My mother is given flowers by me

H <— M
STRUCTURE OF PREDICATION

STRUCTURE OF COORDINATION
the condition of the element:
balanced –> N-N, V-V, Adj-Adj, Adv-Adv

a term used in other fields such as anthropology, means “dealing with the state of affairs at a given points of time”.
is used in other sciences, mean “dealing with changes that occur in time”.
