Reply to Haiman and Croft
I am grateful to John Haiman and William Croft for their penetrating critiques of my claims and for the interesting challenges that they provide for them. This offers me a chance to clarify and elaborate on some of the central points of my article. This is an important debate, because iconicity and frequency are central explanatoty concepts in functional and cognitive linguistics. Even if we do not succeed in resolving the issues, our understanding will be enhanced by this discussion.
