(p. vii) Preface

(p. vii) Preface

The idea for this volume was first proposed to me by John Davey several years ago. Its production was delayed for various reasons, not least that I was chairman of the Faculty of Modern and Medieval Languages in Cambridge for the period 2011–2015. I’d like to thank the authors for their patience and, above all, for the excellence of their contributions. I’d also like to thank Julia Steer of Oxford University Press for her patience and assistance. Finally, thanks to the University of Cambridge for giving me sabbatical leave from October 2015, which has allowed me to finalize the volume, and a special thanks to Bob Berwick for sending me a copy of Berwick and Chomsky (2016) at just the right moment.
