Abstract:

Please note: This is a new edition of a previously announced text.

This handbook provides a critical state-of-the-art overview of work in
linguistic typology. It examines the directions and challenges of current
research and shows how these reflect and inform work on the development of
linguistic theory. It describes what typologists have revealed about language
in general and discovered (and continue to discover) about the richly various
ways in which meaning and expression are achieved in the world's languages.

Typological research extends across all branches of linguistics. The degree to
which the characteristics of language are universal or particular is crucial
to the understanding of language and its relation to human nature and culture.
This book is an essential source of reference for linguists of all theoretical
persuasions. It is a vital companion for all those working in linguistic
typology or undertaking linguistic fieldwork on one or more languages.




Linguistic Field(s): Typology
