Presents and critically examines the view that knowledge of a language can partitioned into a mental lexicon (which lists the words) and a syntax (which lists the rules for combining the words). Contrary to the entailments of the model, rules may have only limited applicability, and full compositionality is rare.

Keywords:   generative grammar, lexicon, syntax, rule recursion, grammaticality, status of linguistic data, syntactic constructions, polysemy, compositionality
