Marjolijn Verspoor: dynamic usage-based theory

Cognitive linguistics conference, Polish Cognitive Linguistics Association and the University of Wroclaw

 

A dynamic usage based (DUB) approach to language entails seeing language as a complex, dynamic system (Langacker 2000) and language development as a dynamic process. I will first argue that a usage based theory to language is very much in line with complex, dynamic systems theory (CDST), which might be argued to be a meta theory. Then I will argue that general CDST principles apply to first and second language development, and that by applying methods and techniques developed in CDST, we can gain new insights into language development from a dynamic usage based approach.
