Description:

Little Words is an interdisciplinary examination of the functions and
change in the use of clitics, pronouns, determiners, conjunctions,
discourse particles, auxiliary/light verbs, prepositions, and other “little
words” that have played a central role in linguistic theory and in language
acquisition research. Leading scholars present advanced research in
phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, discourse function, historical
development, variation, and acquisition by children and adults.

This unique volume integrates the views and findings of these different
research areas into one professional source to be used within and across
disciplines. Languages studied include English, Spanish, French, Romanian,
German, Norwegian, Swedish, Slavonic, and Medieval Leonese.
