Subject: Typology: Aikenvald, Non-canonical Marking of Subjects and Objects.

John Benjamins Publishing would like to call your attention to a new
volume in linguistics:


Non-canonical Marking of Subjects and Objects.
Alexandra Aikenvald (Research Centre for Linguistics Typology), R.M.W.
Dixon (La Trobe University) and Masayuki Onishi (Meyo University,
Okinawa) (eds.)
Typological Studies in Language 46

In some languages every subject is marked in the same way, and also
every object. But there are languages in which a small set of verbs
mark their subjects or their objects in an unusual way. For example,
most verbs may mark their subject with nominative case, but one small
set of verbs may have dative subjects, and another small set may have
locative subjects. Verbs with noncanonically marked subjects and
objects typically refer to physiological states or events, inner
feelings, perception and cognition. The Introduction sets out the
theoretical parameters and defines the properties in terms of which
subjects and objects can be analysed. Following chapters discuss
Icelandic, Bengali, Quechua, Finnish, Japanese, Amele (a Papuan
language), and Tariana (an Amazonian language); there is also a
general discussion of European languages. This is a pioneering study
providing new and fascinating data, and dealing with a topic of prime
theoretical importance to linguists of many persuasions.
