Abstract:
Jan Rijkhoff investigates noun phrases--linguistic constructions with
the noun as central element--in a representative sample of the world's
6000 languages and proposes a semantic model to describe their
underlying structure. Assuming no knowledge of any formal or
functional theory of grammar, he shows that the noun phrase word order
patterns of any language can be derived from three universal ordering
principles and furthermore that these principles are elaborations of a
general ordering strategy, by which elements that belong together
semantically tend to occur together syntactically.
