Title: Linguistic Variation Yearbook 2006
Edited By: Pierre Pica
Jeroen van Craenenbroeck
Johan E.C.V. Rooryck
Description:

The 'Linguistic Variation Yearbook 2006' 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 versus 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.
