Abstract:

The impossibility of testing the depth hypothesis of 1960 of a
connection between the complexities of grammar and a limited human
temporary memory led to questioning the ancient grammatical
foundations of linguistics and to developing standard hard-science
foundations. This volume is the first detailed report on how to
reconstitute linguistics on the new hard-science foundation laid by
Victor H. Yngve in 1996.

Hard-science (human) linguistics is the scientific study of how people
communicate. It studies people and also communicative energy flow and
other relevant parts of the physical environment. It studies the real
world, not the world of language, and it develops theories testable
against real-world evidence as is standard in the hard
sciences. Hard-science linguistics takes its rightful place connecting
the humanities and social sciences to biology, chemistry and
physics. Thus linguistics becomes a natural science and contributes to
the unity of science. This unity is clearly evident in the research
reported here by these fifteen pioneering authors from diverse areas
as they work to reconstitute linguistics as a true hard science.
