This volume showcases studies that recognize and provide evidence for the inseparability of lexis and grammar. The contributors explore in what ways these two areas, often treated separately in linguistic theory and description, form an organic whole. The papers in Section I (Setting the Scene) introduce some of the key methodological approaches and theoretical positions at the lexis-grammar interface, while Section II (Considering the Particulars) contains papers that report on case studies and show concrete applications of the central methods and theories. Exploring the Lexis-Grammar Interface is a stimulating collection of papers for anyone who wishes to learn more about and get fresh state-of-the-art perspectives on language patterning.

“Despite the fairly wide scope of the work and the relatively diverse theoretical preferences of the authors in this volume, the main unifying theme in ELGI is that the study of language should be usage-based. All the papers convincingly argue that form and meaning are inseparable and that lexis-grammar interdependence should play a more central role in linguistic theory and description.”
“This book will, undoubtedly, engage its varied readership by offering an array of evidence for the inter-relation of lexis and grammar. The editors of the volume succeed in presenting a collection that is a valuable addition to the field of linguistics due to the various perspectives undertaken on language. The articles included in this collection address the lexis–grammar relation both from a broader sociolinguistic standpoint and a focussed view concerned with the specifics of language processing and use by individual interactants.”
