In linguistic studies, the term "explanation" does not live up to what the philosophers of science intend it to mean. In these pages, "explanation" is put on firmer theoretical footing via a relation of language to the various contexts in which it is embedded. A detailed analysis of the psychological context in particular shows that language processing provides a fruitful approach to explaining linguistic structure and change.

Thomas Berg is Professor of Linguistics at the University of Hamburg.Review:
`The book can be praised for the breadth of linguistic and psycholinguistic patterns that are discussed, and for the way the results are integrated into a complete model of linguistic patterning . . . a much needed contribution to a relatively understudied area of linguistic research that is
gradually entering the theoretical realm. This work has broad implications for many of the foundational issues of linguistic theory.'
Stefan Frisch, University of Michigan, Journal of Linguistics 35, 1999
