Abstract:

The volume demonstrates the interdependence of man's language capacity and
his other conceptual capacities. This enables linguistic structures to be
minimalised, and for extra-linguistic domains to provide much of the
interpretations of sound and meaning. Underspecification is demonstrated in
the word formation of Indo-European, Late Archaic Chinese and modern Khmer;
on the word- and sentence levels by the event structures of German; and in
the information structure predominantly of languages with the so-called
free word order: German, Slavic languages, Arabic compared with English and
the tone language Hausa.

The volume is noteworthy due to the close cooperation between theoretical
and experimental research. Within grammar, it has especially strengthened
prosodic research and the syntax-phonology interrelations and their
interpretations, and it has helped to create data bases for the relations
within texts and to evaluate the findings.

Linguistic Field(s): Cognitive Science
