 Abstract:
 
 This volume is the product of a Columbia School Linguistics Conference held
 at Rutgers University in October 1999, where the plenary speaker was Ronald
 W. Langacker, a founder of Cognitive Linguistics. The goal of the book is
 to promote two kinds of dialogue. First, dialogue between Cognitive Grammar
 and the particular sign-based approach to language known as the Columbia
 School. While they share certain basic assumptions, the "maximalist" CG and
 the "minimalist" CS differ both theoretically and methodologically. Given
 that philosophers from Mill to Kuhn to Feyerabend have stressed the
 importance to any discipline of dialogue between opposing views, the
 dialogue begun here cannot fail to bear fruit. The second kind of dialogue
 is that among several sign-based approaches themselves and also between
 them and two competitors: grammaticalization theory and generic
 functionalism. Topics range from phonology to discourse. Analytical
 problems are taken from a wide range of languages including English,
 German, Guarani, Hebrew, Hualapai, Japanese, Korean, Macedonian, Mandarin,
 Polish, Russian, Serbian, Spanish, Urdu, and Yaqui.
