Complexity in language : developmental and evolutionary perspectives / Salikoko S. Mufwene, Christophe Coupé, François Pellegrino. - Cambridge : Cambridge University press, 2017

The question of complexity, as in what makes one language more 'complex' than another, is a long-established topic of debate amongst linguists. Recently, this issue has been complemented with the view that languages are complex adaptive systems, in which emergence and self-organization play major roles. However, few students of the phenomenon have gone beyond the basic assessment of the number of units and rules in a language (what has been characterized as 'bit complexity') or shown some familiarity with the science of complexity. This book reveals how much can be learned by overcoming these limitations, especially by adopting developmental and evolutionary perspectives. The contributors include specialists of language acquisition, evolution and ecology, grammaticization, phonology, and modeling, all of whom approach languages as dynamical, emergent, and adaptive complex systems.

A critical introduction to phonology : functional and usage-based perspectives / Daniel Silverman. - London : Bloomsbury, 2017

Taking an interdisciplinary approach to phonological theory and analysis, 'A Critical Introduction to Phonology' introduces the key aspects of the discipline. Departing from the mainstream tradition, Daniel Silverman argues that the nature of linguistic sound systems can only be understood in the context of how they are used by speakers and listeners. By proposing that linguistic sound systems are the product of an interaction among sound (acoustics), mind (cognition), and body (physiology), Silverman focuses on the functional consequences of their interaction. Now with each chapter supplemented by a section on “Doing Phonology”, together with phonological examples from a large corpus of data, this expanded second edition offers a provocative introduction to phonological theory. This book is essential reading for all students and researchers of phonology who are already familiar with the standard approaches and provides both a new theoretical background and the mechanical tools for truly successful phonological analyses.

Der deutsche Sprachraum aus der Sicht linguistischer Laien : Ergebnisse des Kieler DFG-Projektes / herausgegeben von Markus Hundt, Nicole Palliwoda und Saskia Schröder. - Berlin : De Gruyter, 2017

Das DFG-Projekt "Der deutsche Sprachraum aus Sicht linguistischer Laien - wahrnehmungsdialektologische Grundlagenforschung und die Rekonstruktion von Laienkonzeptualisierungen zur deutschen Sprache" hatte linguistische, geographische, soziale, kognitive und visualisierte Raumkonzeptionen von regionalen Varietäten des Deutschen aus der Sicht deutschsprachiger linguistischer Laien zum Gegenstand. Im vorliegenden Band werden erstmals Ergebnisse aus allen Bereichen der Untersuchung vorgestellt: Wie konzeptualisieren linguistische Laien ihren sprachlichen Nähebereich? Wie sieht die dialektale Landkarte (mental map) linguistischer Laien aus, wenn der gesamte deutschsprachige Raum im Fokus ist? Welche sprachlichen Merkmale sind für die Gewährspersonen salient (perzipierte und assoziierte Dialektmerkmale)? In welcher Weise haben linguistische Laien überhaupt Zugriff auf ihr eigenen Varietätenwissen und wie ist dieses Wissen strukturiert? Welche Sprachnormvorstellungen haben linguistische Laien? Wie werden einzelne Dialekträume konzeptualisiert und welche Einflüsse sind z.B. durch die regionale Herkunft der Probanden messbar? Der Band bietet somit eine vielseitige Literaturgrundlage für Forschende und fortgeschrittene Studierende.
