Book Information


Title: Ergativity, Valency and Voice
Edited By: Gilles Authier
Katharina Haude
Series Title: Empirical Approaches to Language Typology [EALT] 48

This volume is a collection of articles concerned with the typology of
valency and valence change in a large and diversified sample of languages
that display ergative alignment in their grammar. The sample of languages
represented in these descriptive contributions covers most of the
geographical areas and linguistic families in which ergativity has been
known to exist jointly with well-developed morphological voice, and some
languages belonging to families in which ergativity or voice were not
previously recognized or adequately described up to now.
