Written by a team of leading researchers,it examines important techniques that can be used to obtaininteresting and empirically testable predictions from parametrictheories of language variation and includes chapters on syntax,diachronic syntax and the relationship between linguisticcomplexity and the form of parameters. Fully integrated, andcomplete with a large number of exercises to test readers ontheir understanding of the material, this book will becomeessential reading for students and researchers in linguistictheory.S
