Authors: Reinhard Köhler, Gabriel Altmann

The book is a collection of tasks - both old and new - whose solution would be a valuable contribution to quantitative linguistics. There are both empirical tasks, e.g. application of a conjectured function to new data, and theoretical ones, e.g. derivation of some hypothesized regularity. The problems are taken from phonology, grammar, semantics, lexicology, textology, typology, universals, synergetics, philosophy of science, pragmatics and from the boundaries between disciplines. The tasks are suitable for exams, teaching, dissertations and scientific research. The series introduces a new genre in scientific literature.
