Analogy: A third take

This time round I have selected a reading that follows up on the previous two posts (Wagner; Hock) regarding analogy. In this third post, we find a more general discussion of analogy, this time focused on analogy as cognition process. Although not explicitly focused on sound change like the earlier posts, I believe Anttila raises a number of relevant points to consider, regardless.

Anttila, Raimo. 2003. Analogy: The warp and woof of cognition. In Joseph, Brian D., and Richard D. Janda (Eds.), The handbook of historical linguistics. Oxley: Blackwell. pp. 425-440.
