"Greenberg's Language Universals is typical of his typological-theoretical work in its originality. Starting out from the observations underlying Praguian markedness, Greenberg contributes a mass of new data and generalizations and lays the foundations for a post-structuralist usage-based theory of grammatical asymmetries. This work will continue to be influential for many years to come."--BOOK JACKET

Universals of human language( Book )

9 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 610 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 46 papers in this 4-volume collection pro-vide clear and certain evidence that the search for "implicational universals" of human language (that is, for valid empirical generalizations such as "if property Y exists in a language, then property X must exist as well") has established itself, once and for all, as a powerful and dynamic force in modern linguistics. Concomitantly, the collection attests to a broadened use among scholars engaged in universals re-search of a theoretical and methodological strategy-pioneered, elaborated, and most extensively applied by Joseph Greenberg- that contrasts in fundamental respects with procedures favored by generative grammarians. Finally, and most impressive of all, the papers present abundant "results," a profusion of concrete findings that should persuade even the most hardened skeptics that implicational principles have a great deal to tell about what human language is and how it got to be that way. -- from http://www.jstor.org (May 21, 2014)

Language typology; a historical and analytic overview by Joseph H Greenberg( Book )

26 editions published between 1974 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Main description: "Greenberg's survey of the earlier history of typology is without rivals, a must read for every linguist who is curious about the intellectual roots of current typology. This wouldn't be a work by Greenberg if it didn't go far beyond simple historiography, providing a highly original and readable framework for understanding the earlier efforts." Prof. Dr. Martin Haspelmath, Max-Planck-Institut für Evolutionäre Anthropologie

Studies in typology and diachrony : papers presented to Joseph H. Greenberg on his 75th birthday by Suzanne Kemmer( Book )

15 editions published in 1990 in 3 languages and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Joseph H. Greenberg is a towering figure in late twentieth century linguistics. His major contributions in the field have been in the area of typology and universals, virtually launched by his paper on word order universals, and in diachronic linguistics. The major thrust of Greenberg's work in the past three decades has been in the fusion of these two approaches to linguistic explanation into one, diachronic typology, the cross-linguistic analysis of languages as dynamic systems. This volume honors Greenberg on the occasion of his 75th birthday. It opens with an introduction discussing Greenbe

Linguistics in the 1970's by Joseph H Greenberg( Book )

14 editions published between 1970 and 1971 in English and Undetermined and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is a prepublication edition of four papers presented at a briefing held for representatives of government agencies, foundations and other organizations, November 12, 1970 at the National Museum of History and Technology of the Smithsonian Institution. "Linguistics as a Pilot Science," by Joseph H. Greenberg, examines the impact which developments in linguistics have and are still having on developments in other fields of science such as psychology and anthropology. "Applied Linguistics in a Broad Context," by Norman A. McQuown considers problems of language in conjunction with those of culture and social relations as they relate to communicative activity in a world-wide context. In "Frontiers of Linguistic Theory" Morris Halle uses a discussion of the placement of stress in English words as the basis for certain speculations about the role of innate capacities in the child's acquisition of language. Finally, William Labov's paper "The Place of Linguistic Research in American Society" emphasizes the theme "that the most important applications of linguistic method in education do not lie in the area of grammatical research but rather in the formal study of verbal interaction and the value systems inherent in this behavior" and therefore urges that linguistics deal more with everyday speech.
