Abstract:

Genealogical linguistics and areal linguistics are rarely treated from anintegrated perspective even if they are twin faces of diachronic linguistics. In"Copies versus Cognates in Bound Morphology" Lars Johanson and MartineRobbeets take up this challenge. The result is a wealth of empirical facts anddifferent theoretical approaches, advanced by internationally renownedspecialists and young scholars whose research is highly pertinent to thetopic.

"Copies versus Cognates in Bound Morphology" puts genealogical and arealexplanation for shared morphology in a balanced perspective and works outcriteria to distinguish between morphological cognates and copies. LarsJohanson and Martine Robbeets provide nothing less than the foundations fora new perspective on diachronic linguistics between genealogical and areallinguistics.
