Abstract:

Please note: This is a new edition of a previously announced text.

This handbook compares the main analytic frameworks and methods of
contemporary linguistics. It offers a unique overview of linguistic theory,
revealing the common concerns of competing approaches. By showing their
current and potential applications it provides the means by which linguists
and others can judge what are the most useful models for the task in hand.

Distinguished scholars from all over the world explain the rationale and aims
of over thirty explanatory approaches to the description, analysis, and
understanding of language. Each chapter considers the main goals of the model;
the relation it proposes between lexicon, syntax, semantics, pragmatics, and
phonology; the way it defines the interaction between cognition and grammar;
what it counts as evidence; and how it explains linguistic change and
structure.
