Abstract:

Note: This is a new version of a previously announced book.

This book provides a general perspective on valency-changing mechanisms -
passives, antipassives, causatives, applicatives - in the languages of the
world. It contains a comprehensive typology of causatives by R. M. W.
Dixon, and detailed descriptions of valency-changing mechanisms in ten
individual languages by leading scholars, based on original fieldwork. The
sample languages span five continents and every kind of structural profile.
Each contributor draws out the theoretical status and implications of
valency-changing derivations in their language of study, and the relevant
parameters are drawn together, and typological possibilities delineated, in
the editors' introduction. The volume, originally published in 2000, will
interest typologists, those working in the fields of morphosyntactic
variation and lexical semantics, and exponents of formal theories engaging
with the range of linguistic diversity found in natural language.
