Book Information


Title: Future Challenges for Natural Linguistics
Edited By: Katarzyna Dziubalska-Kolaczyk
Jarosław Weckwerth
Series Title: LINCOM Studies in Theoretical Linguistics 30
Description:

The purpose of this volume is to stir discussion and stimulate comments
which may eventually result in Natural Linguistics re-asserting itself more
widely in the present-day arena of linguistic frameworks. A global future
challenge for Natural Linguistics is to demonstrate its epistemological
potential to new audiences in a convincing and informative manner. It is
hoped that this volume may serve two functions: to unite natural linguists
in their research and to encourage others to become involved in a Natural
Linguistic framework.

Among the thirteen papers constituting the volume, the reader will find
contributions to phonology, phonetics, morphology, and text, as well as
reference to such areas of external evidence as first language acquisition,
language change, phonostylistics, dialectal variation, psycholinguistics,
speech pathology and evolution. Considered issues include: functional
explanation and dysfunctions, markedness and complexity, phonological
categoriality and phonetic gradience, semiotic underpinnings of linguistic
explanations, the uses and meanings of naturalness, morphological
productivity, typological vs. language-specific nature of morphological
priming, criteria for nativization of loanwords, and development of
compositionality in the phylogenesis of language.
