Based on a wide range of languages, this work sheds light on the human
language building activity. It argues that the conscious and unconscious
signature of human nature is written everywhere in language. The study
of these 'signatures' gives insight into basic characteristics of human
beings, tends to re-humanize linguistics, and stresses the importance of
language as a dynamic activity as opposed to a self-contained system.

These papers are dedicated to Gerald Sanders, author of Equational
Grammar and Invariant Ordering. They reflect the influence Prof. Sanders
has had, whether related to questions of rule ordering and
underspecification in phonology, structure and derivation in syntax,
form and function in discourse, or categorization and natural domain in
typology.
