Title: Linguistic Theory and Empirical Evidence
Edited By: Bob de Jonge
Yishai Tobin
URL: http://benjamins.com/catalog/sfsl.64
Series Title: Studies in Functional and Structural Linguistics 64
Description:

This volume further elaborates the empirical tradition of Columbia School (CS)
Linguistics by offering diverse empirical analyses for a wide variety of
languages. These studies open a much needed debate advocating the
necessity of the independent validation of linguistic hypotheses. This research
exemplifies how such a validation should be conducted by determining which
forms underlie the analyses and extracting those observations that are
considered to be objective. The volume consists of two parts: a section on
synchronic and diachronic grammatical problems and a section on Phonology
as Human Behavior (PHB), the Columbia School version of phonology, applied
to evolutionary, developmental and clinical issues and the phonotactics of the
selected lexicon of a literary text. It provides a wealth of useful empirical data
and in-depth and sophisticated qualitative and quantitative analyses of a broad
range of languages from diverse families: French, Spanish, Afrikaans, Dutch,
English, Polish, Russian, Japanese, and Hebrew.
