|Abstract||We propose a shift in perspective from the view of natural languages as formal languages to natural languages as a collection of resources for constructing local languages for use in particular situations. This is suggested by our experience constructing natural language grammars for particular applications using the Grammatical Framework. It points to a research programme investigating how such resources play a role in linguistic innovation by agents constructing situation-speciﬁc local languages and how they can be made dynamic, modiﬁed by the linguistic agent’s exposure to innovative linguistic data.|
