Parts of Speech are a central aspect of linguistic theory and analysis.Though a long-established tradition in Western linguistics and philosophyhas assumed the validity of Parts of Speech in the study of language, thereare still many questions left unanswered. For example, should Parts ofSpeech be treated as descriptive tools or are they to be considereduniversal constructs? Is it possible to come up with cross-linguisticallyvalid formal categories, or are categories of language structure ultimatelylanguage-specific? Should they be defined semantically, syntactically, orotherwise? Do non-Indo-European languages reveal novel aspects ofcategorical assignment? This volume attempts to answer these and otherfundamental questions for linguistic theory and its methodology by offeringa range of contributions that spans diverse theoretical persuasions andcontributes to our understanding of Parts of Speech with analyses of newdata sets.

These articles were originally published in Studies in Language 32:3 (2008).
