Book Description. This book explores the idea that functional categories are the flesh and blood of grammar'. From within the context of the Principles and Parameters framework put forward by Chomsky and others, Jamal Ouhalla develops the argument that much of what we understand by the term grammar and grammatical variation involves functional categories in a crucial way. The book opens with a detailed introduction to the ideas and techniques deployed in the book and the phenomena and issues on which they are brought to bear. Seventeen chapters follow, divided into two parts, the first part concerned with grammaticalization and the second part with parametric variation.   Parametric variation is a case study in parametric approaches to crosslinguistic variation, as well as an argument in favor of such an approach. It frames the discussion of parameters around various types of null-subject languages (NSLs) and the null-subject parameter (NSP) as the parameter governing their crosslinguistic distribution.   Read "Functional Categories and Parametric Variation" by Jamal Ouhalla available from Rakuten Kobo.

Variation is a central topic, both conceptually and historically in evolutionary biology. Phenotypic variation was Darwin's fundamental observation. Indeed, the first two chapters of On the Origin of Species deal explicitly with variation. Variation within and among species has certainly been as central to the thinking of Ernst as it was to the.
