Language Faculty and Beyond
Internal and External Variation in Linguistics

Kleanthes K. Grohmann, University of Cyprus

ISSN: 1877-6531

Language Faculty and Beyond (LFAB) focuses on research that contributes to
a deeper understanding of the properties of languages as a result of the
Language Faculty and its interface with other domains of the mind/brain.
The research agenda pursued in LFAB reflects the program established after
more than five decades of generative inquiry and builds bridges with other
domains in the spirit of earlier cognitive traditions, such as the classic
work of Plato or the Cartesian view of the mind. LFAB will address
properties of the Language Faculty as defined for the domains of macro- and
micro-variation across languages.

While the series will pay particular attention to the traditional tension
between descriptive and explanatory adequacy, the series will also address
issues such as the level of linguistic design, through new lines of inquiry
often referred to as ‘physiological linguistics’ or ‘biolinguistics’. LFAB
aims to publish studies from the point of view of internal and external
factors which bear on the nature of linguistic variation as, for example,
understood in the minimalist approach to language, and make accessible
aspects of the research that are relevant to broader issues, among them
neurological and physiological/psychological evidence that bear on the
nature of language in a more narrow sense.

Linguistic Field(s): Linguistic Theories; Psycholinguistics
