Not sure if this would be more suited to the linguistics site, but wondering what the antonym would be.

Example sentence would be:

We find that grammars are consistently structure-dependent and not [word-here].

'Linear' or something might work but not sure what the technical term would be.


I think "syntactic" would be a single word for structure dependent, wrt linguistics: as in syntax as "The arrangement of words and phrases to create well-formed sentences in a language"

So either "non-syntactic" or "a-syntactic"?

Merriam-Webster :

Syntactic : of, relating to, or according to the rules of syntax or syntactics


Asyntactic :not syntactic, an asyntactic narrative
