A Response to Collins' Note on Conventions and Unvoiced Syntax

Croatian Journal of Philosophy 8 (2):249-255 (2008)
This paper takes up the two main points in John Collins “Note” (2008b), which responds to my paper, “Explanation and Reality in Linguistics” (2008). (1) Appealing to what grammars actually say, the paper argues that they primarily explain the nature of linguistic expressions. (2) The paper responds to Collins’ criticisms of my view that these expressions have many of their properties by convention
