Genetic linguistics : essays on theory and method by Joseph H Greenberg( )

19 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 1,583 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fifty years ago, Joseph Greenberg put forward the now widely-accepted classification of African languages. This book charts the progress of his work on language classification in Oceania, the Americas, and Eurasia, in which he proposed the language families Indo-Pacific, Amerind, and Eurasiatic. It shows how he established and deployed three fundamental principles: that the most reliable evidence for genetic classification is the pairing of sound and meaning; that nonlinguistic evidence, such as skin colour or cultural traits, should be excluded from the analysis; and that the vocabulary and inflections of a very large number of languages should be simultaneously compared. The volume includes Joseph Greenberg's substantive contributions to the debate his work provoked and concludes with his writings on the links between genetic linguistics and human history."--Jacket
Language universals, with special reference to feature hierarchies by Joseph H Greenberg( )

53 editions published between 1966 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 1,538 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

22 editions published between 1974 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 1,335 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

Universals of human language( Book )

2 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 567 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)

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

15 editions published in 1990 in English and Italian and held by 336 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
The theory of social situations : an alternative game-theoretic approach by Joseph H Greenberg( Book )

4 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book, first published in 1991, offers an integrative approach to the study of formal models in the social and behavioural sciences. The theory presented here unifies both the representation of the social environment and the equilibrium concept. The theory requires that all alternatives that are available to the players be specified in an explicit and detailed manner, and this specification is defined as a social 'situation'. A situation, therefore, not only consists of the alternatives currently available to the players, but also includes the set of opportunities that might be induced by the players from their current environment. The theory requires that all recommended alternatives be both internally and externally stable; the recommendation cannot be self-defeating and, at the same time, should account for alternatives that were not recommended. In addition to unifying the representation and the solution concept, the theory also extends the social environments accommodated by current game theory
