Abstract:

There is a perceived tension between empirical and theoretical approaches to
the study of language. Many recent works in the discipline emphasise that
linguistics is an ‘empirical science’. This volume argues for a nuanced view,
highlighting that theory and practice necessarily and as a matter of fact
complement each other in linguistic research. Its contributions – ranging from
experimental studies in psychology via linguistic fieldwork and
cross-linguistic comparisons to the application of formal and logical
approaches to language – exemplify the mutual relationship between empirical
and theoretical work. The volume illustrates how selected topics are addressed
by different contributions and methodological stances. Topics include the
cognitive grounding of language, social cognition and the construction of
meaning in interaction, and, closely related, pragmatics from a typological
perspective and beyond. Anyone interested in these topics and more generally
in meta-theoretical considerations will find great value in this volume.
