A note on linguistic theory and typology

Guglielmo Cinque
Published Online: 2007-07-31 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/LINGTY.2007.008


Let me say right away that I do not consider (“formal”) linguistic theory and linguistic typology as two separate approaches. The in-depth, abstract analysis of a certain phenomenon (say, how a restrictive relative clause is built) and the study of what variation there is concerning that phenomenon (how many ways of forming restrictive relative clauses are found across languages) are two sides of the same inquiry.
