North Holland Linguistic Series: Linguistic Variations 

Series Editors: J. Rooryck, Leiden & P. Pica, Paris

Elsevier Science is pleased to announce this new collection, under new
series editorship, and with revised aims and scope.

The goal of the collection is to put at the disposal of the linguistic
community studies which contribute to a deeper understanding of the
nature of linguistic variation within the generative tradition that
has developed since the middle of the twentieth century.

The series pays particular attention to the tension between
descriptive and explanatory adequacy more accurately reformulated as a
tension between the simplicity of the language faculty and its
apparent complexity. Volumes will cover the traditional domain of
syntactic studies, but also include related areas such as semantics,
morphology, phonology and the lexicon. The series aims at
distributing theoretical and empirical studies which constitute
important contributions to the field, in particular to the domain of
micro- and macro-variation.

The particular aim of the series is to publish both theoretical and
empirical studies of language. Although the main focus of the series
will be on generative linguistics, it will not exclude studies of a
more general nature or from different schools of thought, insofar as
they contribute to our understanding of the language faculty.

The editors welcome new proposals for future volumes.
