TYPOLOGY OF ITERATIVE CONSTRUCTIONS
Viktor S. Xrakovskij (ed.), Russian Academy of Sciences, Institute of
Linguistic Research, Saint-Petersburg

The present book has been prepared by the Language Typology Workshop
of the Russian Academy of Sciences Institute of Linguistic Research.

	The book continues the earlier studies of the Workshop
addressing the syntactic structure of the sentence:
(ed. A.A. Kholodovich) Typology of Causative Constructions, "Nauka":
Leningrad, 1969, (ed. A.A. Kholodovich) Typology of Passive
constructions, "Nauka": Leningrad, 1974, (ed. V.P. Nedjalkov) Typology
of resultative constructions, Amsterdam 1988, etc.

	The monograph focuses on the semantic category of multiplicity
of situations realized in utterances. The main objective of this work
is, by proceeding from content to form, to determine grammatical,
lexical, and contextual means of expressing the specific meanings of
plurality, viz. the iterative, the multiplicative, and the
distributive both in a single language and in different languages.

	The book consists of three parts. Part 1 outlines the theory
suggesting one of the possible ways of interpreting the category of
situational plurality.

	Part 2 has four sections and 24 chapters describing the
category of situational plurality in structurally different languages.
These descriptions are quite uniform and, on the whole, are based on
the theory presented in Part 1. Section A (Chapters 1-7) deals with
languages which use special grammatical markers to express the
iterative, multiplicative, and distributive. Section B (Chapters 8-15)
focuses on languages having specific grammatical means to express the
iterative. Section C (Chapters 16-20) describes languages that have
tense forms combining with iterative adverbials. Section D (Chapters
21-24) deals with languages where iterative meanings are expressed by
adverbials. It is easily seen that this classification lays no claims
to strict precision, its immediate aim being an intuitively acceptable
classification of linguistic data. This Part was prepared by a large
group of authors, including T. G. Akimova (English), E. V. Golovko
(Aleut), E. A. Gruzdeva (Nivkh), E. E. Kordi (French),
N. A. Kozintseva (Armenian), I. V. Nedjalkov (Even), V. P. Nedjalkov
(Chukchee), M. A. Smirnova (Hausa), N. M. Spatari (Cambodian) ,
V. A. Stegnij (Klamath), N. B. Vaxtin (Eskimo), A. P. Volodin
(Itelmen), V. A. Plungian (Chamalal), D. M. Nasilov (Turkic
languages), I. S. Bystrov (Vietnamese), S. Je. Jaxontov (Chinese),
Ju. P. Knyazev (Slavic languages), G. Z. Poumpyan (Arabic),
V. M. Alpatov (Japanese), B. A. Zaxarjin (Hindi),
E. \138. Geniushiene (Lithuanian), V. P. Litvinov (Ewe),
S. M. Kibardina (German), and Agus Salim (Indonesian). The three
interpretations of the category of plurality presented in Part 3
(written by L. A. Biriulin, G. G. Silnitskij, I. B. Dolinina) differ
from the theory developed in the preceeding chapters both in their
general approach and in specific aspects of analysis. The book is
supplied with an extensive bibliography.
