Title: Linguistic Variation Yearbook 2010

Series Title: Linguistic Variation Yearbook 10
Description:

The "Linguistic Variation Yearbook" 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. It 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. The "Linguistic Variation Yearbook" publishes
annually a collection of (invited) articles on a theme that is current in and
important to the research on linguistic variation within the generative framework.
The focus is on comparative studies, such as research on typology and dialect
variation.
