Abstract:

The collection of papers in this volume presents results of a collaborative
project between the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) in
London, the Zentrum für allgemeine Sprachwissenschaft, Typologie und
Universalienforschung (ZAS) in Berlin, and the University of Leiden, which
was funded by the British Academy International Networks Programme. The
papers combine the description of new data with theoretically informed
analysis.
