Book Information


Title: Linguistic Variation Yearbook 2008
Edited By: Jeroen van Craenenbroeck
Johan E.C.V. Rooryck
Series Title: Linguistic Variation Yearbook 8

The 'Linguistic Variation Yearbook' 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 vs.
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.
