Series Title: Explorations in Language and Space
Description:

This book shows that every language has an adjective class and how such
classes vary. Thirteen scholars report original research on languages from
North, Central and South America, Europe, Africa, Asia and the Pacific. The
book throws new light on the nature and classification of adjectives and
redefines the cross-linguistic parameters of their variation.
