Linguistic Variation Yearbook 8

2009. 284 pp.


The Linguistic Variation Yearbook is exclusively devoted to the study of the
nature and scope of linguistic variation from the point of view of the
minimalist program. In this perspective, the yearbook aims at going beyond the
traditional tension between explanatory and descriptive adequacy. It seeks in
particular to investigate to what extent the study of linguistic variation can
shed light on the broader issue of language particular vs. language universal
properties and design.
The Linguistic Variation Yearbook publishes annually a collection of (invited)
articles on a theme that is current in and important to the research on
linguistic variation within the generative framework. The focus is on
comparative studies, such as research on typology and dialect variation.
