Book Information

   

Title: Grammatical Relations in Romani
Edited By: Viktor Elšík
Yaron Matras
Series Title: Current Issues in Linguistic Theory 211
Description:

This is the first typologically-oriented collection on Romani that is devoted to a particular thematic domain - that of noun phrase grammar. The approach taken is unique in that it places this typologically hybrid language in the centre of a general linguistic, universal discussion of the relevant noun phrase phenomena. The book is also the first assembly of articles to deal with Romani as a whole on the basis of cross-dialectal samples, offering areal-typological, dialectological, and historical interpretations. The individual contributions discuss morphological and syntactic aspects of nominal and pronominal inflection, definite articles, demonstratives, genitive compounding, external possession, pronominal object doubling and morphosyntactic alignment. Contributors include leading experts in the fields of noun phrase grammar, Romani dialectologists, typologists and historical linguists.
