The renaissance of corpus linguistics and promising developments in
experimental linguistic techniques in recent years have led to a remarkable
revival of interest in issues of the empirical base of linguistic theory in
general, and the status of different kinds of linguistic evidence in
particular. Consensus is growing (a) that even so-called primary data (from
introspection as well as authentic language production) are inherently
complex performance data only indirectly reflecting the subject of
linguistic theory, (b) that for an appropriate foundation of linguistic
theories evidence from different sources such as introspective data, corpus
data, data from (psycho-)linguistic experiments, historical and diachronic
data, typological data, neurolinguistic data and language learning data are
not only welcome but also often necessary. It is in particular by
contrasting evidence from different sources with respect to particular
research questions that we may gain a deeper understanding of the status
and quality of the individual types of linguistic evidence on the one hand,
and of their mutual relationship and respective weight on the other.

The present volume is a collection of (selected) papers presented at the
conference on 'Linguistic Evidence' in Tübingen 2004, which was explicitly
devoted to the above issues. All of them address these issues in relation
to specific linguistic research problems, thereby helping to establish a
better understanding of the nature of linguistic evidence in particularly
insightful ways.
