In recent years research on comparative typology has led to reveal
regularities and to formulate new constraints upon variation for a
broad range of phenomena. As the amount of typological research
increased, a growing interest arose for the implications that findings
in the typological field might have on second language acquisition.

Written by experts in the field of typology and / or second language
acquisition, this volume addresses theoretical and empirical issues on
structural domains such as relative clauses and possessive
constructions as well as pragmatic considerations on information
organization in learners productions.

Anna Giacalone Ramat is Professor of Linguistics at the University of
Pavia, Italy.
