Abstract:
			
The result of over five years of close collaboration among an
international group of leading typologists within the EUROTYP program,
this volume is about the morphology and syntax of the noun phrase.
Particular attention is paid to nominal inflectional categories and
inflectional systems and to the syntax of determination, modification,
and conjunction. Its areal focus, like that of other EUROTYP volumes,
is on the languages of Europe; but in order to appreciate what is
peculiarly European about their noun phrases, a more comprehensive and
genuinely typological view is taken at the full range of
cross-linguistic variation within this structural domain. There has
been no shortage lately of contributions to the theory of noun phrase
structure; the present volume is, however, unique in the extent to
which its theorizing is empirically grounded.
