This study addresses the feasibility of the classical notion of parameter in linguistic theory from the perspective of parametric hierarchies. A novel program-based analysis is implemented in order to show certain empirical problems related to these hierarchies. The program was developed on the basis of an enriched data base spanning 23 contemporary and 5(More)
The repeatedly noted absence of case-reports of individuals with schizophrenia and congenital/early developed blindness has led several authors to argue that the latter can confer protective effects against the former.

James Hurford's Language in the Light of Evolution two-volume project aims to bring together an up-to-date account of the synthesis of language in the light of evolution, going from meaningful mental representations, widespread in the animal kingdom, to the emergence of the first words and their grammatical combination.
