The 23rd UWM Linguistics Symposium (1996) brought together linguists of
opposing theoretical approaches - functionalists and formalists - in order
to determine to what extent these approaches really differ from each other
and to what extent the approaches complement each other. The two volumes
of Functionalism and Formalism in Linguistics contain a careful selection
of the papers originally presented at the symposium.

Volume I includes papers discussing the two basic approaches to
linguistics; with contributions by: Werner Abraham, Stephen R. Anderson,
Joan L. Bybee, William Croft, Alice Davidson, Mark Durie, Ken Hale,
Michael Hammond, Bruce P. Hayes, Nina Hyams, Howard Lasnik, Brian
