Abstract:

The volume brings together seventeen chapters by typologists and
typologically oriented field linguists who have recently completed their
Ph.D. theses. Through their case studies of selected theoretically relevant
issues the authors highlight the mutual importance of language description,
on the one hand, and of cross-linguistically informed theory, on the other.
Faced with new data from previously unknown languages and even from
lesser-studied varieties of European languages, linguists constantly have
to deal with the inadequacy of established concepts and typologies, being
pushed to further refine their classifications and to question the accepted
borderlines between different categories, types, and levels of linguistic
description.

The scope of the individual contributions to the volume varies from
worldwide typological samples to family-internal typology to in-depth
studies of single languages. The range of linguistic domains addressed
include tonology, morphology, syntax, and lexical classes. Among the
phenomena scrutinized are clitics, tones, case, agreement/indexation,
localization, pluractionality, desideratives, lability, comitative
constructions, raising, verb formation, nominal classification, parts of
speech, and predicates of change. More general theoretical and
methodological issues addressed include such topics as markedness,
grammaticalization, lexicalization, and the integration of linguistic data
and description.

The book is of interest to typologists and field linguists, as well as to
any linguists interested in theoretical issues in different subfields of
linguistics. A particular contribution of the volume is to present a
synthesis of typological and descriptive approaches to the study of
language, and to highlight the fact that broader typological study and the
focused investigation of particular languages are interdependent ventures
that necessarily inform each other.
