Abstract:

The renaissance of corpus linguistics and promising developments inexperimental linguistic techniques in recent years have led to a remarkablerevival of interest in issues of the empirical base of linguistic theory ingeneral, and the status of different kinds of linguistic evidence inparticular. Consensus is growing (a) that even so-called primary data (fromintrospection as well as authentic language production) are inherentlycomplex performance data only indirectly reflecting the subject oflinguistic theory, (b) that for an appropriate foundation of linguistictheories evidence from different sources such as introspective data, corpusdata, data from (psycho-)linguistic experiments, historical and diachronicdata, typological data, neurolinguistic data and language learning data arenot only welcome but also often necessary. It is in particular bycontrasting evidence from different sources with respect to particularresearch questions that we may gain a deeper understanding of the statusand quality of the individual types of linguistic evidence on the one hand,and of their mutual relationship and respective weight on the other.

The present volume is a collection of (selected) papers presented at theconference on 'Linguistic Evidence' in Tübingen 2004, which was explicitlydevoted to the above issues. All of them address these issues in relationto specific linguistic research problems, thereby helping to establish abetter understanding of the nature of linguistic evidence in particularlyinsightful ways.
