Title: Language and Reality
Subtitle: Sydney Lamb
Written By: Sydney M. Lamb
Edited By: Jonathan J. Webster
Description:

Language and Reality presents selected writings of Professor Sydney M. Lamb, including six new works and several which have been re-worked for publication here. Professor Lamb's work in linguistics over the past four decades has been concerned with exposing illusions about language and with finding realities, including neurological realities, behind the linguistic abstractions that others have dwelt upon. His name is synonymous with certain landmarks in the development of linguistic theory, including stratificational grammar, relational network theory, and more recently neurocognitive linguistics. The book is divided into four parts, the first of which includes papers offering insight into the man behind this pioneering approach to doing linguistics. The papers in Part II explore the theoretical origins of Lamb's ideas about language that have often been described as ahead of their time. Part III includes more recent writings outlining work done in Neurocognitive Linguistics. Studies of the interconnectedness of language with other kinds of human experience and with history are presented in Part IV.
