  <dc:description>This article presents the results of an empirical study on the phenomenon of
/r/-liaison (i.e., linking /r/ and intrusive /r/) in non-rhotic English from
the perspective of usage-based Cognitive Linguistics. The study looks into
sociolinguistic, phonetic and usage-based factors that condition variability
in /r/-liaison through the analysis of news archives from the BBC World
Service website (years 2004 and 2005). The paper argues that a thorough
understanding of the phenomenon of /r/-liaison requires an analysis of the
different aspects that condition its use and the use of empirical methods to
study it.</dc:description>
