Abstract:

This collection of original papers is a representative survey of recent
theoretical and cross-linguistic work on reciprocity and reflexivity. Its
most remarkable feature is its combination of formal approaches, case
studies on individual languages and broad typological surveys in one
volume, showing that the interaction of formal approaches to grammar and
typology may lead to new insights and results for both fields.

Among the major issues addressed in this volume are the following: How can
our current knowledge about the space and limits of variation in the
relevant domain be captured in a structural typology of reciprocity? What
light can such a typology shed on the facts of particular languages or
groups of languages (e.g. Austronesian)? How can recent descriptive and
typological insights be incorporated into a revised and more adequate
version of the Binding Theory? How do verbal semantics, argument structure
and reciprocal markers interact? How can we explain the pervasive patterns
of ambiguity observable in these two domains, especially the use of the
same forms both as reflexive and reciprocal markers? What are the major
sources in the historical development of reciprocal markers?

This combination of large-scale typological surveys with in-depth studies
of particular languages provides new answers to old questions and raises
important new questions for future research.
