"It is my firm belief that LVYB might well play an integral role in future
research shedding light on both linguistic theory and explaning variation. The
contributions to the first issue set a high standard which carries over the
second issue, confirming this belief so far. [...] LVYB can, and possibly
should, be seen as a new platform for researchers interested in linguistic
variation to develop new theoretical approaches with consequences for more than
one (narrowly defined) part of the grammar. [...] In other words, taking a wider
minimalist-cognitive perspective [...] opens the door to a whole new world of
