Title: Non-Canonical Passives
Edited By: Artemis Alexiadou
Florian Schäfer
URL: http://benjamins.com/catalog/la.205
Series Title: Linguistik Aktuell/Linguistics Today 205
Description:

This volume contains a selection of papers dealing with constructions that have a passive-like interpretation but do not seem to share all the properties with canonical passives. The fifteen chapters of this volume raise important questions concerning the proper characterization of the universal properties of passivization and reflect the current discussion in this area, covering syntactic, semantic, psycho-linguistic and typological aspects of the phenomenon, from different theoretical perspectives and in different language families and backed up in most cases by extensive corpora and experimental studies.
