The Linguistic Variation Yearbook (LVYB) is a journal that is
exclusively devoted to the study of the nature and scope of linguistic
variation from the point of view of the minimalist program. In this
perspective, the Yearbook aims at going beyond the traditional tension
between explanatory and descriptive adequacy. The LVYB seeks in
particular to investigate to what extent the study of linguistic
variation can shed light on the broader issue of language particular
vs. language universal properties and design.
