Abstract:

This textbook deals with the grammatical category of person, which
covers the first person, the second person, and the third
person. Drawing on data from over 700 languages, Anna Siewierska
compares the use of person within and across different languages, and
examines the factors underlying this variation. She shows how person
forms vary in substance, in the nature of the semantic distinctions
they convey, in how they are used in sentences and discourse, and in
the way they function to convey social distinctions. By looking at
different types of person forms in the grammatical and social contexts
in which they are used, this book documents an underlying unity
between them, arguing against the treatment of person markers based on
arbitrary sets of morphological and syntactic properties. Clearly
organized and accessibly written, it will be welcomed by students and
scholars of linguistics, particularly those interested in grammatical
categories and their use.
