Series Title: Studies in Language Companion Series 94
Description:

Language complexity has recently attracted considerable attention from
linguists of many different persuasions. This volume – a thematic selection
of papers from the conference Approaches to Complexity in Language, held in
Helsinki, August 2005 – is the first collection of articles devoted to the
topic. The sixteen chapters of the volume approach the notion of language
complexity from a variety of perspectives. The papers are divided into
three thematic sections that reflect the central themes of the book:
Typology and theory, Contact and change, Creoles and pidgins. The book is
mainly intended for typologists, historical linguists, contact linguists
and creolists, as well as all linguists interested in language complexity
in general. As the first collective volume on a very topical theme, the
book is expected to be of lasting interest to the linguistic community.
