Title: Roots
Subtitle: Linguistics in Search of its Evidential Base
Edited By: Sam Featherston

Series Title: Studies in Generative Grammar [SGG] 96
Description:

The renewed focus on the evidential base of linguistics in general, but
particularly on syntax, is in to a large degree dependent on technological
developments: computers, electronic storage and transmission. These factors
have enabled a revolution in the accessibility of digitally stored
language, both in sampled and organized corpora and in its raw unsampled
form on the internet. But this technology has also allowed a step-change in
experimental methods readily available to linguists. The new arrival of
such enormous quantities of data in greatly increased detail has made
information accessible which could previously not even have been dreamed
of. This volume is a selection of research reports from linguists who are
making use of this new information and trying to integrate the new insights
into their analyses and theoretical assumptions.
