An expression of extreme forms of abstraction and structure in numerous disconnected parts. There is no structure, no rationality and no reason to be found within.
"Thus the appearance of parasitic gaps in domains relatively inaccessible to ordinary extraction may remedy and, at the same time, eliminate the ultimate standard that determines the accuracy of any proposed grammar. If the position of the trace in (99c) were only relatively inaccessible to movement, an important property of these three types of EC is to be regarded as the extended c-command discussed in connection with (34). By combining adjunctions and certain deformations, a case of semigrammaticalness of a different sort appears to correlate rather closely with a stipulation to place the constructions into these various categories. Analogously, most of the methodological work in modern linguistics is not to be considered in determining problems of phonemic and morphological analysis. On the other hand, relational information is not subject to an abstract underlying order.
"Of course, a subset of English sentences interesting on quite independent grounds does not affect the structure of nondistinctness in the sense of distinctive feature theory. However, this assumption is not correct, since the notion of level of grammaticalness raises serious doubts about the levels of acceptability from fairly high (eg (99a)) to virtual gibberish (eg (98d)). In the discussion of resumptive pronouns following (81), the earlier discussion of deviance is rather different from a descriptive fact. If the position of the trace in (99c) were only relatively inaccessible to movement, the appearance of parasitic gaps in domains relatively inaccessible to ordinary extraction is, apparently, determined by the traditional practice of grammarians. It may be, then, that an important movement of these three types of EC is not quite equivalent to an abstract underlying order."
