This book presents a collection of papers on clusivity, a newly coined term
for the inclusive-exclusive distinction. Clusivity is a widespread feature
familiar from descriptive grammars and frequently figuring in typological
schemes and diachronic scenarios. However, no comprehensive exploration of
it has been available so far. This book is intended to make the first step
towards a better understanding of the inclusive-exclusive opposition, by
documenting the current linguistic knowledge on the topic.

The issues discussed include the categorial and paradigmatic status of the
opposition, its geographical distribution, realization in free vs bound
pronouns, inclusive imperatives, clusivity in the 2nd person, honorific
uses of the distinction, etc. These case studies are complemented by the
analysis of the opposition in American Sign Language as opposed to spoken
languages. In-depth areal and family surveys of clusivity consider this
opposition in Austronesian, Tibeto-Burman, central-western South American,
Turkic languages, and in Mosetenan and Shuswap.

"Let's face it (which is inclusive, while let us isn't), there is now only
one really authoritative source of knowledge about (in/ex) clusivity: this
book, the work of an international team of experts on that category and the
languages that insist on expressing it. No pronouns shelf in a
self-respecting private or public library should be missing it."
Frans Plank, University of Konstanz

"This is a fine, varied collection, which should put the issue of
'clusivity' on the intellectual map."
Greville Corbett, University of Surrey, Guildford
