Participation Grammar theory

Participation Grammar is an emerging theory of language that I describe in a book manuscript currently in preparation for Language Science Press (series: Conceptual Foundations of Language Science).

Over the coming months, draft chapters of the volume will gradually become available through the linked chapter titles below.

Comments on draft chapters are very welcome.
