Title: Adverbial Subordination A Typology and History of Adverbial Subordinators Based on European Languages
Written By: Bernd Kortmann
Series Title: Empirical Approaches to Language Typology 18
Description:

Based on the morphological, semantic and syntactic analysis of the complete inventories of adverbial subordinators (like English while, since, if, because, although) of some fifty European languages, this ground-breaking monograph is the most comprehensive and innovative account of adverbial subordinators to date. Besides laying the theoretical and methodological foundations for the typological and historical study of adverbial subordinators and related grammatical categories, it takes a stand on, and offers fascinating insights into, issues of central concern to all linguists interested in one or more of the following subject areas: adverbial subordination, grammar, typology, semiotics, semantics, cognitive linguistics, grammaticalization and language history (especially the history of English).
