Ch.5: Derivations and levels of representation by John J. McCarthy


"Underlying and surface forms are known as levels of representation, and the mapping between them is a derivation. This chapter describes the rationale for positing distinct levels of representation, various views of how many and what kind of levels of representation there are, and the nature of the derivations that link different levels of representation."
