Language Faculty and Beyond: Internal and External Variation in Linguistics
(LFAB) focuses on research that contributes to a deeper understanding of
the properties of languages as a result of the Language Faculty and its
interface with other domains of the mind/brain. The research agenda pursued
in LFAB reflects the program established after more than five decades of
generative inquiry and builds bridges with other domains in the spirit of
earlier cognitive traditions, such as the classic work of Plato or the
Cartesian view of the mind. LFAB will address properties of the Language
Faculty as defined for the domains of macro- and micro-variation across

While the series will pay particular attention to the traditional tension
between descriptive and explanatory adequacy, the series will also address
issues such as the level of linguistic design, through new lines of inquiry
often referred to as 'physiological linguistics' or 'biolinguistics'. LFAB
aims to publish studies from the point of view of internal and external
factors which bear on the nature of linguistic variation as, for example,
understood in the minimalist approach to language, and make accessible
aspects of the research that are relevant to broader issues, among them
neurological and physiological/psychological evidence that bear on the
nature of language in a more narrow sense.

The series welcomes submissions. Book proposals, preferably structured
along the lines indicated in the Benjamins'  Guidelines for Book Proposals
( www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/show_html.cgi?file=/jbp/submit.htm), can be
sent to the series editors:
