Book Information


Title: Language Typology and Syntactic Description, Volume 3: Grammatical Categories and the Lexicon
Edited By: Timothy Shopen
Description:

This unique three-volume survey brings together a team of leading scholars
to explore the syntactic and morphological structures of the world's
languages. Clearly organized and broad-ranging, it covers topics such as
parts-of-speech, passives, complementation, relative clauses, adverbial
clauses, inflectional morphology, tense, aspect, mood, and diexis. The
contributors look at the major ways that these notions are realized, and
provide informative sketches of them at work in a range of languages. Each
volume is accessibly written and clearly explains each new concept
introduced. Although the volumes can be read independently, together they
provide an indispensable reference work for all linguists and fieldworkers
interested in cross-linguistic generalizations. Most of the chapters in the
second edition are substantially revised or completely new - some on topics
not covered by the first edition. Volume III covers typological
distinctions in word formation, lexical typologies, inflectional
morphology, gender and noun classes, aspect, tense, mood, and lexical
nominalization.
