Locus of Linguistic Variation

Innbundet / 2018 / Engelsk
This volume explores how the patterning of surface variation can shed light on the grammatical representation of variable phenomena. The authors explore variation in several domains, addressing intra- and inter-dialectal patterns, using diverse sources of data including corpora of naturally-occurring speech and judgment studies, and drawing on lesser-studied varieties of familiar languages, such as Northwest British Englishes and varieties of Canadian French. Ultimately, the contributions serve to expand our understanding of the nature of the mental representations and abstract processes required to support variation in language. Originally published as special issue of Linguistic Variation 16:2 (2016)
Les mer
[A]n exceptional book that offers some very interesting and rather stimulating food for thought - in particular with respect to reconciling generative grammar with sociolinguistics. [...] [I]t shows very convincingly paper for paper how theory and data can inform one another and what enormous explanatory power can be revealed by considering both sides of the (language) coin. -- Ulrike Stange, Johannes Gutenberg-Universitat Mainz, on Linguist List 30.2105 (17 May 2019)
