Abstract:

Iconicity and naturalness remain controversial concepts in recent
linguistic research. The present volume aims to scrutinize unresolved
issues of iconicity and naturalness in language. The studies discuss topics
such as naturalism in the philosophy of language and the epistemology of
linguistics, linguistic iconicity in semiotics, iconic structures in Sign
Languages, natural and unnatural sound patterns, the iconic nature of parts
of speech, the relation between (un)markedness and naturalness, and lexical
and syntactic iconicity. The research conducted is based on sound
(meta)theoretical analyses and/or original empirical research. The data and
innovative views presented are bound to spark discussion in an age-old
debate that has lost nothing of its significance.

Linguistic Field(s): Philosophy of Language
                            Semantics

Written In: English (eng )
