Abstract:

There is general agreement in present-day linguistics that the subject is
at its best when it is empirical. However, there are a number of apparently
incompatible views on what makes language study truly empirical, and even
what counts as the right sort of data for the linguist to study. Siobhan
Chapman offers a fresh approach to this debate by comparing it to some
remarkably similar disagreements about data, methodology and the nature of
empiricism in mid-twentieth century philosophy, disagreements that were
largely provoked by reactions to the ideas of the Vienna Circle. Her main
focus is a comparison of the work of J. L. Austin and the less well know
work of Arne Naess. Despite significant differences, both said things about
language that have striking resonance with much more recent claims in
linguistics, particularly in fields such as corpus linguistics that deal
with 'real life' examples of language use.
