Abstract:

The text discusses the first application of the Transformational-Generative Grammar (TGG) to Bulgarian language in a 1963 paper by Hilmar Walter. The role of this paper is outlined within the general reception process of TGG from American into Bulgarian linguistic practice by analyzing the factors determining the indirect reception via German mediation. In addition, some main reception features of H. Walter’s paper have been considered, that have played a leading role in Bulgarian reception of generative grammar in general. Special emphasis is laid on the repercussion of the pioneering paper in Bulgarian linguistic circles.
