When diachrony meets synchrony. Phonological change, phonological variation and Optimal Paradigms
This paper aims to illustrate how the problems derived from access to intricate diachronic empirical data can sometimes be informed by a careful look at interdialectal microvariation, in that this linguistic micro Variation can sometimes help to explain why a phonological process applies or has applied.

The Development of the Biblical Hebrew Vowels
In historical linguistics, the prevailing view is that sound change is phonetically regular: within one language variety, the same sound in the same phonetic environment always undergoes the sameExpand
The paradigm of Weideman : appreciating the uniqueness of language and scholarly disciplines
This contribution commences with a substantiation of the claim made by Weideman regarding the inevitable “philosophical base” of linguistics by showing that the question what a special science is, isExpand
Triangulating Perspectives on Lexical Replacement : From Predictive Statistical Models to Descriptive Color Linguistics
This thesis is to investigate lexical replacement processes from several complementary perspectives through three studies, each with a different scope and time depth. Expand
Dynamic Contextualized Word Embeddings
Static word embeddings that represent words by a single vector cannot capture the variability of word meaning in different linguistic and extralinguistic contexts. Building on prior work onExpand
Multi-word Vernacular Formations in the Multilingual Durham Account Rolls
The textbook account of the history of English suggests that Middle English favoured lexical borrowing and native compounding declined. Still, some types of compounds carried on being productive andExpand
Semantic shift in social networks
This work investigates the relationship between community structure and semantic change in 45 communities from the social media website Reddit, using distributional methods to quantify lexical semantic change and induce a social network on communities, based on interactions between members. Expand
Artificial sound change: Language change and deep convolutional neural networks in iterative learning
The paper argues that several properties of sound change emerge from the proposed architecture, and suggests that the proposed Generative Adversarial models of phonetic and phonological acquisition have the potential to yield new insights into the long-standing question of how to model language change.

Born to Parse How Children Select Their Languages
structure in a generative system changes, that typically has multiple consequences for the structures and expressions generated by the system, leading to discontinuities and possibilities forExpand
Derivational morphology: An integrative perspective on some fundamental questions
This chapter tries to answer some central questions in the study of derivational morphology: What are the units of analysis? What are the mechanisms that underlie the creation, as well as theExpand
