Book description:

Moving within a cognitive and functional framework, this volume
focuses on the motivations for linguistic patterning in human social
and cognitive experience, and on the dynamic properties of language
construal, use, and development. "Conceptual and Discourse Factors in
Linguistic Structure" represents a selection of refereed papers from
the fourth conference on Conceptual Structure, Discourse, and Language
(CSDL 4), held at Emory University in Atlanta in October 1998. One
thing that brings people together at the CSDL conferences is an
agreement that the predominant theoretical approaches in contemporary
American linguistics -- derivatives of Chomskyan linguistics such as
minimalism, government and binding theory, principles and parameters
-- are limited in what they can reveal about the human mind and how
language functions in actual speech situations because they are
restricted by theoretical assumptions about the formal nature of
grammars. Among the main research avenues represented in this volume
are first language acquisition, metaphor, language processing and
discourse, and conceptual structure and grammar.
