Abstract:

This volume considers the processes involved in language change and
the issues of how they can be modelled and studied. The way languages
change offers an insight into the nature of language itself, its
internal organization, and how it is acquired and used. Accordingly,
the phenomenon of language change has been approached from a variety
of perspectives by linguists of many different orientations. This book
brings together leading figures from different areas of linguistics to
re-examine some of the central issues in this field.
