Abstract:

This is a book about comparison in linguistics in general, rather than
'contrastive analysis' as a distinct branch of linguistics. It
addresses the question 'Does the analytical apparatus used by
linguists allow comparisons to be made across languages?' Four major
domains are considered in turn: derivational morphology, syntax,
semantics & pragmatics, and discourse. Contributions cover a broad
spectrum of linguistic disciplines, ranging from contrastive
linguistics and linguistic typology to translation studies and
historical linguistics.
