Title: Plurality and Classifiers across Languages in China
Edited By: Dan Xu
URL: http://www.degruyter.com/view/product/184860?format=G
Series Title: Trends in Linguistics. Studies and Monographs [TiLSM] 255
Description:

Plural marking, numeral classifiers and reduplication constitute the main means of quantification marking in the domain of grammar. The contributions in this book focus on the typological correlation between the three different strategies for quantification, as well as on some general issues. A better understanding of the quantification strategies in the languages of China will enrich our comprehension of human language and thought. The book is expected to have an impact on the study of linguistic typology, language contact, and patterns of the evolution.
