The Scope of Usage-Based Theory

Article English OPEN
Ibbotson, Paul;

Usage-based approaches typically draw on a relatively small set of cognitive processes, such as categorization, analogy, and chunking to explain language structure and function. The goal of this paper is to first review the extent to which the “cognitive commitment” of ... View more
