Keywords: linguistics; language; analysis; linguistic units; bottom-up approach;
Summary/Abstract: Bottom-up Linguistics offers an alternative to most mainstream views of language and linguistic analysis. The approach involves seeing linguistic units and relations in their multi-dimensional diversity, and as adaptations to communicational need and for the construction of verbal reality. Generalisations are built up from observations, and diversity within and between languages is respected. Both information and signal properties of speech are considered.
