This volume addresses the fundamental linguistic question of how the
perceived world is expressed through systems of nominal classification.
Leading scholars review the whole spectrum of nominal classification, from
gender systems through to numeral classifiers, providing cutting-edge
theoretical interpretations and empirical case studies across a variety of
languages. The volume presents new ideas about the problems of
classification and clarifies the interface between anthropological and
grammatical work. It will appeal to linguists, anthropologists and
psychologists alike as well as specialists in languages as diverse as
Australian, Amazonian, and Mayan.
