Abstract:
			
With unusual structural characteristics, Finnish and Saami offer
interesting challenges to linguistic theories formulated around more
popular languages. Grammatically, for instance, languages in the
Finnic and Saami group utilize extensive systems of case inflection on
nouns to signal a broad variety of relations that in almost all other
languages require additional words. Phonologically, as another
example, the phenomenon of 'consonant gradation' is of particular
interest to linguists.

This volume is the first to examine the phonology, morphology, syntax
and semantics of Finnic and Saami languages within current generative
linguistic frameworks. Collected here is research on these
less-studied languages, some of which face extinction.
