Abstract

It is argued that structural properties shared by a large number of studied languages cannot be a mere result of coincidences but must have been acquired („learnt") and proved useful in the course of evolution. Bodily and cognitive boundary conditions and limitations as well as efficiency requirements are claimed to lie the basis of the observed regularities.
