What, If Anything, Is Linguistic Creativity?


This paper investigates the nature of creativity in language and linguistics. Following Sampson (2016), it distinguishes between F-creativity (which roughly equals linguistic productivity) and E-creativity (which leads to new and unexpected innovations). These two notions of creativity are discussed on the basis of examples from three different domains: snow cloning, mismatch/coercion, and aberration. It is shown that pure E-creativity may only be found in the case of aberration. Both snow cloning and mismatch/coercion are examples for F-creativity, but to varying degrees. As a consequence, it is suggested that in practice, F- and E-creativity actually form a cline, rather than a dichotomy.

Dinesh Bhugra: a personal history of Psychiatry

reality, reduced funding has added further problems. While in the past, the Colleges carried out inspection visits to training schemes to enable and facilitate changes, now with the regulators, it has become a cumbersome exercise (with anecdotal evidence of more than 200 inspectors visiting hospitals for up to 2 weeks) that does not necessarily encourage innovation and thinking out of the box. It feels like everything is being dragged down to the lowest possible denominator. Doctors as a profession have to speak up and be advocates for services and patients

Out-look on the development of Russian education in the context of world trends

this, it is possible and it is necessary to apply all available technological innovations and achievements of various fields [ 24 ]. But, on the other hand, there is a dangerous trend connected with the fact that innovative digital technologies will reformat the very nature of students, will bring them to entirely different system of values, will rebuild and format new worldview. It is necessary to understand that it is a matter of dismantling education system, because now a system filling a person with certain competences is being introduced instead of education
