Abstract: The article advances linguistic synergetics as a novel research methodology by focusing on applicability of synergetic principles to language development studies. Synergetics is a name for the science of complexity that deals with principles of emergence, self-organisation and self-regulation of complex systems. From the perspective of the synergetic approach, a human language is considered an open, dynamic, non-linear, self-organizing system with all its hierarchical subsystems and elements coherently interconnected and controlled by governing parameters. Language development is understood as a change of the parameter pattern of a given language system, which causes the latter to self-organize into a new state. It is assumed that at any given moment the system of a language has its own parameter pattern. Any change within this pattern is but a signal of changes of the whole synergetic system. The typological shift of English is based on the mechanism of changes within the parameter pattern of the language. As a result, the Old English synthetic language became the Modern English analytical language.
Description: The early years of the 20th century witnessed a great number of scientific discoveries, the rise of new scientific disciplines (such as genetics in biology, thermodynamics and quantum mechanics in physics, and others), as well as rapid development of new technologies, which brought about significant changes into our understanding of the system and its ubiquity. The outer world began to be seen as a dynamic conglomeration of systems – biological, chemical, physical, social, etc. Researchers were eager to construct a comprehensive scientific view of the world based on laws common for both organic and inorganic nature, or put differently, to create a new complex systems paradigm. New scientific theories were suggested (such as General Systems Theory, Instability Theory, Dynamic Chaos Theory, Catastrophe Theory, Phase-Transition Theory, the Theory of Bifurcations, etc.) within which new concepts and methods of investigation were developed, which later on provided a foundation for synergetics as a unified approach to various complex systems study.
