Item description for Quantitative Linguistics (Linguistic & Literary Studies in Eastern Europe) by Te?...
Since the 1960s quantitative linguistics has undergone a development marked especially by attempts to work systematically with language phenomena on all language levels. Besides traditional areas where significant results were already achieved before the 1960s (phonology, graphemics and lexicology), quantitative linguistics has now also penetrated into morphology, syntax, stylistics, history and typology of languages and, more recently, into semantics. This volume gives a comprehensive account of the various developments and applications in quantitative linguistics. After an overview of methods used in quantitative linguistics, it discusses the main areas: lexical statistics, grammatical statistics and semantics statistics, with reference to a great number of studies of different languages and language families. Chapter four deals with other domains (phonology, graphemics, stylistics, typology, development of languages, word-formation), chapter six deals with various applications and chapter seven discusses the relationship between quantitative linguistics and the computer. The volume is completed by a list of references and indices of names and of subjects.
