Usage-based models of language

The Usage-based linguistics is a linguistics approach within a broader functional/cognitive framework, that emerged since the late 1980s, and that assumes a profound relation between linguistic structure and usage.[1] It challenges the dominant focus, in 20th century linguistics (and in particular con formalism-generativism), on considering language as an isolated system removed from its use in human interaction and human cognition.[1]

The term usage-based was coined by Ronald Langacker in 1987.[2] Usage-based models of language became a significant new trend in linguistics since the early 2000s.[1]
