Title: RE: Empirical Linguistics and Mixing the Levels
Submitter: Lise Menn
Description: Yes, 'not mixing levels' is a tenet - but linguistics is science, not a religion; tenets are subject to empirical testing, and if they fail to account for the data, then they must be modified. Many of us think there are problems with this particular idea, even though it does have value as a methodological starting point.
