Synchrony/diachrony, frequency and analogy

Research output: Contribution to journal/periodicalArticleScientificpeer-review


The synchrony/diachrony issue must be sidestepped, since the ultimate
question to be studied is: which psycholinguistic limitations does the human
brain impose on its representation of language. These limitations involve
frequency and analogy, which are the cause of ill-understood chaos-theoretic
patterns of order. In particular, analogy must be formalised, and its interaction
with frequency must be further investigated.
