It is shown that these two claims and the contention that ‘syntax, by itself, is diachronically completely inert’ (Longobardi, 2001:278), if construed as a substantive, falsifiable theory of diachrony, make predictions that are too strong, and that they cannot be reduced (as seems desirable) to properties of language acquisition. I also express doubt as to the utility and necessity of a methodological/heuristic principle of Inertia.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:issued>2012-06</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2017-05-16T12:34:55Z</dcterms:available> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2017-05-16T12:34:55Z</dc:date> <dc:contributor>Walkden, George</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
