Abstract:

This book is an introduction to Word Grammar, a theory of language
structure founded and developed by Dick Hudson. In this theory, language is
a cognitive network - a network of concepts, words and meanings containing
all the elements of a linguistic analysis. The theory of language is
therefore embedded in a theory of knowledge, in which there are no
boundaries between one form of knowledge and any other.

The most controversial idea in Word Grammar syntax is that phrase structure
is redundant, because all its work can be done by means of dependencies
between individual words. Word-word dependency is therefore a key concept
in Word Grammar, and the syntax and semantics of a sentence is built upon
this foundation.

Contributors to this volume are primarily Word Grammar grammarians from
across the world. All the chapters here manifest theoretical potentialities
of Word Grammar, exploring how powerful Word Grammar is to offer analysis
for linguistic phenomena in various languages. The chapters come from
varying perspectives and include work on a number of languages, including
English, German, Japanese, Swahili, Turkish and Ancient Greek. Phenomena
studied include verbal inflection, case agreement, extraction, construction
and code-mixing.

This new collection will be of interest to academics encountering Word
Grammar for the first time, or for those who are already familiar with this
theory and are interested in reading how it has evolved and what its future
may hold.

Kensei Sugayama is Professor in the Department of English, Kobe City
University of Foreign Studies, Japan. Richard A. Hudson is Emeritus
Professor in the Department of Phonetics and Linguistics, University
College London.
