A grammar of Saramaccan Creole by John H McWhorter( )

7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 931 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Saramaccan has been central to various debates regarding the origin and nature of creole languages. Being the most removed of all English-based creoles from European language structure in terms of phonology, morphology and syntax, it has been seen as one of the most extreme instantiations of the creolization process. This is the first full-length description of Saramaccan. The grammar documents, in particular, a valence-sensitive system of indicating movement and direction via serial verb constructions, hitherto overlooked amidst the generalized phenomenon of serialization itself.

Quantifying language dynamics : on the cutting edge of areal and phylogenetic linguistics by Søren Wichmann( )

9 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 779 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book contains specially-selected papers introducing new, quantitative methodologies for understanding language interaction and evolution. It draws upon data from the phonologies, morphologies, numeral systems, constituent orders, case systems, and lexicons of the world’s languages, bringing large datasets and sophisticated statistical techniques to bear on fundamental questions such as: how to identify and account for areal distributions, when language contact leads to grammatical simplification, whether patterns of morphological borrowing can be predicted, how to deal with contact within phylogenetic models, and what new techniques are most effective for classification of the world’s languages
Linguistic universals and language change by Jeff Good( Book )

22 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 431 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book looks at the relationship between linguistic universals and language change. Reflecting the resurgence of work in both fields over the last two decades, it addresses two related issues of central importance in linguistics: the balance between synchronic and diachronic factors in accounting for universals of linguistic structure, and the means of distinguishing genuine aspects of a universal human cognitive capacity forlanguage from regularities that may be traced to extraneous origins
The linguistic typology of templates by Jeff Good( )

8 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Defining template 1.1 Templates: Often invoked, but undertheorized The notion of a template has been used in a number of linguistic domains to refer to grammatical patterns where the form of some linguistic constituent appears to be well conceptualized as consisting of a fixed linear structure, whether in terms of the arrangement of its subconstituents or its overall length.1 To take two examples, consider Table 1.1, which schematizes the ordering of morphemes in verbs across the Athabaskan family, and Table 1.2, which gives data illustrating the application of a particular nickname formation strategy in Japanese where the resulting nicknames must be bimoraic in length. The pan-Athabaskan template described in Table 1.1 characterizes verbs in this family as consisting of a series of "slots" into which morphemes of different grammatically-defined classes appear"--

The languages and linguistics of Africa by Tom Güldemann( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This innovative handbook takes a fresh look at the currently underestimated linguistic diversity of Africa, the continent with the largest number of languages in the world. It covers the major domains of linguistics, offering both a representative picture of Africa's linguistic landscape as well as new and at times unconventional perspectives. The focus is not so much on exhaustiveness as on the fruitful relationship between African and general linguistics and the contributions the two domains can make to each other. This volume is thus intended for readers with a specific interest in African languages and also for students and scholars within the greater discipline of linguistics

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Linguistic Universals and Language Change. Oxford Linguistics( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book looks at the relationship between linguistic universals and language change. Reflecting the resurgence of work in both fields over the last two decades, it addresses two related issues of central importance in linguistics: the balance between synchronic and diachronic factors in accounting for universals of linguistic structure, and the means of distinguishing genuine aspects of a universal human cognitive capacity for language from regularities that may be traced to extraneous origins. The volume brings together specially commissioned work by leading scholars, including prominent representatives of generative and functional linguistics. It examines rival explanations for linguistic universals and assesses the effectiveness of competing models of language change. The authors investigate patterns and processes of grammatical and lexical change across a wide range of languages; they consider the degree to which common characteristics condition processes of change in related languages; and examine how far differences in linguistic outcomes may be explained by cultural or external factors. This book will interest the wide range of scholars in linguistics and related fields concerned with language change, historical linguistics, linguistic typology and universals, and the nature of the human language faculty
