Abstract:

Nowadays, linguists do not question the existence of synchronic variation, 
and the dichotomy between synchrony and diachrony. They recognize that 
synchrony can be motivated regionally (diatopic variation), sociolinguistically 
(diastratic variation), or stylistically (diaphasic variation). But, further, they 
can also recognize the hybrid nature of synchrony, which is referred to as 
"dynamic synchrony." This conception of synchrony assumes that similar 
patterns of usage can coexist in a community during a certain period and that 
their mutual relations are not static but conflicting enough to result in a future 
systematic change through symptomatic synchronic variation. Emergence of 
a large corpus of written texts for some languages has enabled quantitative 
as well as qualitative analyses of the synchronic conditions for diachronic 
changes, over both long and short spans of time. Most of the 14 papers in 
this volume represent studies on synchronic and diachronic variations based 
on such corpus data.
