Abstract:

This is the first book which brings together the fields of theoretical and 
empirical studies in syntax on the one hand and the methodology of 
quantitative linguistics on the other hand. The author provides the theoretical 
background for this enterprise on the basis of the philosophy of science and 
of linguistic considerations including a discussion of Chomsky's attitude 
against the application of statistical methods to syntactic phenomena. He 
gives a short introduction into the aims and methods of the quantitative 
approach to linguistics in general and to syntax in particular. The following 
chapters inform the reader about the measurement of syntactic properties, 
possibilities to acquire empirical data from syntactically annotated text 
corpora and the most common mathematical models and methods for the 
analysis of syntactic and syntagmatic material. Then, a number of prominent 
approaches and hypotheses about interrelations between properties of 
syntactic constructions are presented and evaluated on material from various 
languages and text kinds. Finally, the theory of synergetic linguistics and its 
application to syntax is introduced including the integration of such famous 
hypotheses as Yngve's depth hypothesis and Hawkins's "Early immediate 
constituent" principle.
