Theory of Language

Steven E. Weisler and Slavko Milekic


In this introductory-level linguistics text, Steven E. Weisler and
Slavko Milekic develop a theoretically motivated analysis of language
with an emphasis on grammar construction and argumentation. They
introduce the theory of language, sounds, words, sentences, and
meaning, as well as language and the brain.


The text is available either in hard-copy form or as a CD-ROM. The
CD-ROM presents the text in a dynamic digital learning environment,
engaging the user in simulations, demonstrations, hypothesis testing,
and theory construction while providing a systematic introduction to
linguistic theory. The electronic edition also incorporates the Tree
Builder tool for construction and evaluation of phonological,
metrical, and syntactic analysis of trees, as well as a word
processor, various annotation mechanisms (for example, the ability to
create and exchange voice and text memos), import/export capabilities
that allow the exchange of different types of information, and an
extensive series of interviews with such prominent figures as David
Caplan, Noam Chomsky, Lyn Frazier, John Rickford, Tom Roeper, Ivan
Sag, and Tom Wasow.


Steven E. Weisler is Director of the Cognitive Science Program and
Professor of Linguistics at Hampshire College, Amherst, Massachusetts.
Slavko Milekic is an Affiliate of the Cognitive Science Program and
Visiting Lemelson Professor at Hampshire College.

Working Minimalism

edited by Samuel David Epstein and Norbert Hornstein


The essays in this book present explicit syntactic analyses that adhere
to programmatic minimalist guidelines. Thus they show how the guiding
ideas of minimalism can shape the construction of a new, more
explanatory theory of the syntactic component of the human language
faculty.
