Description

The 23rd UWM Linguistics Symposium (1996) brought together linguists of opposing theoretical approaches - functionalists and formalists - in order to determine to what extent these approaches really differ from each other and to what extent the approaches complement each other. The two volumes of Functionalism and Formalism in Linguistics contain a careful selection of the papers originally presented at the symposium.Volume 1 includes papers discussing the two basic approaches to linguistics.Volume 2 consists of case studies which draw upon the strengths of both approaches and thus help to bridge the gap between the two camps.
