Linguistic Structure and Change

An Explanation from Language Processing

Thomas Berg

Thomas Berg analyzes language as a psychological phenomenon in order to reach a clearer understanding of why the structure of language is the way it is and how it changes. He claims that real explanations of the structure of language can only emerge by establishing connections between language and its context. The explanatory power of one of these contexts, the psychological one, is examined in detail.
