Abstract:

The Linguistic Variation Yearbook is exclusively devoted to the study of
the nature and scope of linguistic variation from the point of view of the
minimalist program. In this perspective, the yearbook aims at going beyond
the traditional tension between explanatory and descriptive adequacy. It
seeks in particular to investigate to what extent the study of linguistic
variation can shed light on the broader issue of language particular versus
language universal properties and design. 
The Linguistic Variation Yearbook publishes annually a collection of
(invited) articles on a theme that is current in and important to the
research on linguistic variation within the generative framework. The focus
is on comparative studies, such as research on typology and dialect variation.
