Abstract:
			
This books presents an entirely new approach in cross-linguistic
research. Aiming at a typological comparison of the interaction
between lexicon and grammar in English and two varieties of Arabic
(Standard and Egyptian Arabic), the authors proceed from fine-grained
analyses of single lexical families rather than lexical fields or
grammatical categories. Using the family of English gold and the
corresponding Arabic families dahab and dahab as an exemplary case
study, they compare lexical-semantic, morphosyntactic, and
discourse-pragmatic properties of the microstructure of these families
in a very detailed fashion. As amply demonstrated throughout this
book, the microstructural method enables the linguist to capture
subtle hidden properties revealing evidence for fundamental
cross-linguistic differences that cannot be arrived at on the basis of
coarse-grained macrostructural typologies. The microstructural
approach is crucially associated with a corpus-based method of data
acquisition and a multidimensional framework of representation.

Leila Behrens is specialized in semantics (e.g. ambiguity,
genericity), lexicon-grammar interaction, and questions of
representation in a cross-linguistic research context. Hans-Juergen
Sasse is a typologist with particular interest in linguistic
categorization. He is specialized in Afroasiatic languages, including
Arabic.
