Sample text

Grammatical patterns are pervasive in language, and they interplay and emerge diachronically (language change), synchronically (all levels of linguistic organization from phonology to pragmatics and genre), and ontogenetically (language acquisition and learning). The notions of patterns, or chunks, and constructions broadly share the assumption that language is fundamentally an inventory of ready-made structures filled with semantic content; however, there is no consensus on the form in which strings of language are memorized and routinized.

And yet, language is always provisional, with its structures being constantly subject to negotiation and change, always in motion toward never-reaching completeness and stabilization. Semiotically speaking, to say that linguistic phenomena arise spontaneously means that the ‘sign’ is not stable, rather it is always provisional in that it changes when speakers use it. As a consequence, repetition of discourse undermines sign stability and gives rise to novel linguistic structures. Language use is therefore responsible for emergent patterns.

Meaning does not reside in linguistic units, but it is constructed in the minds of the language users. Consequently, the patterns of linguistic structure are underspecified prompts that require conceptual completion through metonymic processes in any act of meaning construction. Language exhibits only partial compositionality and linguistic units are simple points of access to more elaborate conceptual structures. Embodied Semantics goes a step further and postulates that concepts acquire meaning when they are associated with their neural representations in the brain, representations that are produced by way of the same neural apparatus that activates in the planning and perception of real referents for linguistically perceived concepts.
