Abstract:

The goal of this collection is to put at the disposal of the linguistic
community studies which contribute to a deeper understanding of the nature
of language and linguistic variation within the lines that have now been
established after fifty years of generative inquiries, often building
bridges in the spirit of earlier cognitive traditions, such as the classic
work of Plato, the Cartesian view of the mind, and others.While the series
will pay particular attention to the traditional tension between
descriptive and explanatory adequacy, it will also address many old and new
issues, such as the tensions raised at the level of linguistic design
through new lines of inquiries often referred to as 'physiological
linguistics' or, more dominantly, 'biolinguistics', in particular in the
domains of macro- and micro-variations. It is indeed curious that, while
the issues at stake are accepted or praised at a rhetorical level, the data
that bear on the relevant issues or even the argument at stake are often
difficult to access in print, or are often not addressed at all in the form
of monographs or dedicated collections. This series will in particular
study internal and external factors which bear on the nature of linguistic
variation proper, focusing on properties of the Language Faculty and its
interface with other domains of the Mind/Brain, as defined within the
Minimalist Program, the predominant direction current generative inquiries
take and further develop.
