Series Title: Linguistik Aktuell/Linguistics Today 150
Description:

Linguistics investigates the systems underlying language, speech, and
language use. Linguists seek to develop an understanding of the rules and
laws that govern the structure and use of particular languages and the
manner in which these interact with internal systems and processes
(interpretation, speech perception, and production) and with the outside
world (acquisition, use, change and role in society). The articles in this
volume present a valuable addition to answering three important questions
about knowledge in linguistics: What is knowledge in linguistics, how is it
acquired, and how is it put to use? Apart from the data on the specific
phenomena addressed in the articles, the book presents insight into the
palette of present-day linguistics. In this way, it aims to break open the
division of linguistics into subfields thereby making possible
cross-fertilisation.
