Sharing certain assumptions but differing in theory and practice, both Columbia School linguistics (CS) and Cognitive Grammar (CG) have increasingly supported their analyses with quantitative evidence. Citation of individual sentences, in isolation or in context, has been supplemented with counts of linguistic forms in texts, informant questionnaires, and perception tests. The present volume, continuing a dialogue between CS and CG, offers six such qualitative-quantitative studies, one on Afrikaans and five on Dutch. Topics include (a) demonstratives, (b) pragmatic particles and imperatives, (c) a puzzling “dismissive” idiom, (d) progressive aspect, and (e) indirect objects. While CS is better suited for analyzing relatively closed systems (e.g. tense, pronouns), CG provides more insight into the vagaries of the amorphous lexicon. The author also offers personal remarks on “linguistics as a path” and discusses how in one case a wrong prediction reflects his dual role as both linguist and student of Dutch as a foreign language.

“Professor Kirsner combines the perceptive amazement of a non-native speaker with analytic skills fed by the Columbia School of linguistics, by Californian functionalism, and by Cognitive Grammar. The result is a fascinating series of studies on Dutch and Afrikaans: aspects of the grammar that seem obvious to the native speaker turn out to be puzzles on closer scrutiny - but in Kirsner's able hands, they do come with a solution.”
“Are linguistic items typically monosemous or rather polysemous? Do lexical items and grammatical constructions behave the same or differently in this respect? And how can quantitative analysis of utterance data help decide such questions? In this book, Kirsner analyzes Dutch and Afrikaans demonstrative pronouns, Dutch modal particles and imperative and progressive constructions as test cases for these theoretical and methodological questions, and reflects on the implications of his findings for theoretical models like Columbia School and Cognitive Grammar. The present volume provides an inspiring insight in Kirsner’s life long fascination with languages, linguistic theories and methodological dilemmas.”
