Intersubjectivity and explanation in linguistics: A reply to Hinzen and van Lambalgen

From the journal


1. Introduction

Let me start by saying that I very much appreciate both the effort that Hinzen and Van Lambalgen (hereafter, H&L) have put into commenting on Constructions of Intersubjectivity (hereafter, CoI), and their comments as such. It is important for all cognitive disciplines studying language that representatives from different schools of thought try to address each other's work, in terms of both results and foundations. We may not reach agreement as a result of a discussion, but it will still be helpful in clarifying matters for ourselves and for other interested scholars, and thus for the future development of our common field of study. This is true even if the divide is deep—which is the case here in a number of respects, as H&L indicate themselves.
