Abstract:

Language and Reality presents selected writings of Professor Sydney
M. Lamb, including six new works and several which have been re-worked
for publication here. Professor Lamb's work in linguistics over the
past four decades has been concerned with exposing illusions about
language and with finding realities, including neurological realities,
behind the linguistic abstractions that others have dwelt upon. His
name is synonymous with certain landmarks in the development of
linguistic theory, including stratificational grammar, relational
network theory, and more recently neurocognitive linguistics. The
book is divided into four parts, the first of which includes papers
offering insight into the man behind this pioneering approach to doing
linguistics. The papers in Part II explore the theoretical origins of
Lamb's ideas about language that have often been described as ahead of
their time. Part III includes more recent writings outlining work
done in Neurocognitive Linguistics. Studies of the interconnectedness
of language with other kinds of human experience and with history are
presented in Part IV.
