Abstract:

This unique three-volume survey brings together a team of leading scholars
to explore the syntactic and morphological structures of the world's
languages. Clearly organized and broad-ranging, it covers topics such as
parts-of-speech, passives, complementation, relative clauses, adverbial
clauses, inflectional morphology, tense, aspect, mood, and diexis. The
contributors look at the major ways that these notions are realized, and
provide informative sketches of them at work in a range of languages. Each
volume is accessibly written and clearly explains each new concept
introduced. Although the volumes can be read independently, together they
provide an indispensable reference work for all linguists and fieldworkers
interested in cross-linguistic generalizations. Most of the chapters in the
second edition are substantially revised or completely new - some on topics
not covered by the first edition. Volume I covers parts-of-speech systems,
word order, the noun phrase, clause types, speech act distinctions, the
passive, and information packaging in the clause.

1. Parts-of-speech systems, Paul Schachter and Timothy Shopen;
2. Word Order, Matthew S. Dryer;
3. The major functions of the noun phrase, Avery D. Andrews;
4. Clause types, Matthew S. Dryer;
5. Speech act distinctions in grammar, Ekkehard König and Peter Siemund;
6. Passive in the world’s languages, Edward L. Keenan and Matthew S. Dryer;
7. A typology of information packaging in the clause, William A. Foley.
