Abstract:

John Lyons is recognized internationally as one of the most influential
scholars in modern linguistics. This volume contains essays spanning many
years of his thought and research, in addition to previously unpublished
pieces. Chapters 2, 3 and 4 make their first appearance here, and set out
the view of linguistics and linguistic theory which underlies the content
of this and a (forthcoming) companion volume. The remaining six chapters
have been either extensively revised or annotated to provide the reader
with their historical context and to bring them into line with the author's
current thinking.
