Reviews

'This volume fulfils a most needed gap in linguistics and has a most important and controversial message for future linguists. I would definitely recommend it as required reading in an advanced linguistics course.' Yishai Tobin, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev
'... breaks the existing deadlock in linguistic theory and suggests an approach that will be in the center of debates for years to come. Highly informative and stimulating reading.' Bernard H. Bichakjian, Professor Emeritus, Radboud University and author of Language in a Darwinian Perspective
