CONTENTS

The Theory and a Language (tTAAL)
Larry M. Hyman on African languages and phonological theory

Column
Neil Smith on Are gucks mentally represented?
''The only psychologically real entities for the child are the adult
forms that constitute its lexical representations; its own
pronunciations are then the result of the operation of a
(connectionist) neural network which yields the appropriate
outputs. But these outputs do not define a level of representation.''

''I kind of figured that linguistics had to exist!''
An interview with Henk van Riemsdijk
By Lisa Cheng and Rint Sybesma
''The linguistics scene changed radically in the following summer,
because as one way of appeasing the angry students and angry teachers,
the government decided to build a new campus, Vincennes. It was
basically used to put all the radical political thinkers there, but in
the same stroke, they put all the radical or peripheral or whatever
scientists there that didn't have a real home. And there they started
a linguistics department.''
