This authoritative handbook explores the latest integrated theory for understanding human language, offering the most inclusive text yet published on the rapidly evolving emergentist paradigm.

  • Brings together an international team of contributors, including the most prominent advocates of linguistic emergentism
  • Focuses on the ways in which the learning, processing, and structure of language emerge from a competing set of cognitive, communicative, and biological constraints
  • Examines forces on widely divergent timescales, from instantaneous neurolinguistic processing to historical changes and language evolution
  • Addresses key theoretical, empirical, and methodological issues, making this handbook the most rigorous examination of emergentist linguistic theory ever
