|Abstract||(i)Â Â Languages are indefinitely various along every dimension. (ii)Â Languages are essentially systems of habit/dispositions. (iii) Languages are learnt from experience via analogy and generalisation. (iv) There is no component of the speaker/hearerâ€™s psychology that is Â Â Â Â Â Â specifically linguistic. (v)Â Syntactic relations are ones of surface immediate constituency. (vi) Linguistics is a descriptive/taxonomic science - there is nothing to Â Â Â Â Â explain.|
