Title: The Oxford Handbook of Linguistic Analysis
Edited By: Bernd Heine
Heiko Narrog
Series Title: Oxford Handbooks in Linguistics
Description:

This handbook compares the main analytic frameworks and methods of
contemporary linguistics. It offers a unique overview of linguistic theory,
revealing that common concerns of competing approaches. By showing their
current and potential applications it provides the means by which linguists
and others judge what are the most useful models for the task in hand.

Distinguished scholars from all over the world explain the rationale and
aims of over thirty explanatory approaches to the description, analysis,
and understanding of language. Each chapter considers the main goals of the
model; the relation it proposes between lexicon, syntax, semantics,
pragmatics, and phonology; the way it defines the interaction between
cognition and grammar, what it counts as evidence; and how it explains
linguistic change and structure.
