Abstract:

This book describes the diversity of serial verb constructions within
Oceanic languages. Serial verb constructions are sequences of verbs
placed one after another to express meanings which in other languages
are typically expressed by means of single verbs. It has long been
established that West African, Southeast Asian and Papuan languages
are serializing languages, but the construction has only comparatively
recently been recognized in Oceanic languages, which belong to a very
large sub-group of the Austronesian family.

Lingfield(s): Syntax
