Title: Empirical Functionalism and the Prague School
Written By: Bohumil Vykypěl
Series Title: Travaux linguistiques de Brno 06

In the present volume, the author deals with the relation between the
Prague School and what he calls Empirical Functionalism, the kind of
functionalism pursued by linguists such as T. Givón, Bernard Comrie,
William Croft, Joan Bybee or Martin Haspelmath. He attempts to demonstrate
what the empirical functionalists do not seem to know about the Prague
School, what from the Prague School could be useful for their work and
also, on the other hand, what from the empirical functionalists' work could
be useful for the Prague linguists.
