Abstract:

This volume presents fifteen original papers dealing with various
aspects of causative constructions ranging from morphology to
semantics with emphasis on language data from Central and South
America. Informed by a better understanding of how different
constructions are positioned both synchronically (e.g., on a semantic
map) and diachronically (e.g., through grammaticalization processes),
the volume affords a comprehensive up-to-date perspective on the
perennial issues in the grammar of causation such as the distribution
of competing causative morphemes, the meaning distinctions among them,
and the overall form-meaning correlation. Morphosyntactic interactions
of causatives with other phenomena such as incorporation and
applicativization receive focused attention as such basic issues as
the semantic distinction between direct and indirect causation and the
typology of causative constructions.
