Abstract:

Usage-based approaches to language have gained increasing attention in the
last two decades. The importance of change and variation has always been
recognized in this framework, but has never received central attention. It is
the main aim of this book to fill this gap. Once we recognize that usage is
crucial for our understanding of language and linguistic structures, language
change and variation inevitably take centre stage in linguistic analysis.
Along these lines, the volume presents eight studies by international authors
that discuss various approaches to studying language change from a usage-based
perspective. Both theoretical issues and empirical case studies are
well-represented in this collection. The case studies cover a variety of
different languages – ranging from historically well-studied European
languages via Japanese to the Amazonian isolate Yurakaré with no written
history at all. The book provides new insights relevant for scholars
interested in both functional and cognitive linguistic theory, in historical
linguists and in language typology.
