In this study Donna Jo Napoli takes a refreshingly commonsense approach to the notions of argument and predicate. Recent discussions of predication within Government and Binding theory have stressed the configurational properties of the phrases involved, and Napoli argues that this has led to proposals for more and more elaborate syntactic structures that nevertheless fail to provide genuinely explanatory accounts. She presents a convincing case for viewing the notion of... View more info

According to the received tradition, the language used to refer to natural kinds in scientific discourse remains stable even as theories about these kinds are refined.

We also worry about it a great deal, looking up and checking words in dictionaries and usage guides, occasionally arguing a... View more info

Memes are both stable in that they transmit faithfully from brain to bra... View more info
