Coordinating constructions by Martin Haspelmath( )

18 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 1,860 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first book on coordinating constructions that adopts a broad cross-linguistic perspective. Coordination has been studied intensively in English and other major European languages, but we are only beginning to understand the range of variation that is found world-wide."--Jacket

This book is dedicated to Anna Siewierska, who died, far too young, in 2011. It gathers contributions by the foremost scholars in the field of linguistic typology. They discuss topics that are prominent in Anna's work, taking either a typological or a more language specific perspective. Mindful of Anna's last monograph, Person, the majority of the articles discuss person forms, reference tracking and related issues. Further topics are grammatical alignment, voice, ditransitives, and word order

15 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This landmark publication in comparative linguistics is the first comprehensive work to address the general issue of what kinds of words tend to be borrowed from other languages. The authors have assembled a unique database of over 70,000 words from 40 languages from around the world, 18,000 of which are loanwords. This database (http://loanwords.info) allows the authors to make empirically founded generalizations about general tendencies of word exchange among languages
Language typology and language universals : an international handbook( )

27 editions published in 2001 in 3 languages and held by 1,282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This series of HANDBOOKS OF LINGUISTICS AND COMMUNICATION SCIENCE is designed to illuminate a field which not only includes general linguistics and the study of linguistics as applied to specific languages, but also covers those more recent areas which have developed from the increasing body of research into the manifold forms of communicative action and interaction. For ""classic"" linguistics there appears to be a need for a review of the state of the art which will provide a reference base for the rapid advances in research undertaken from a variety of theoretical standpoints, while in the m

Indefinite pronouns by Martin Haspelmath( )

41 editions published between 1996 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 977 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most of the world's languages have indefinite pronouns, that is - expressions such as someone, anything, and nowhere. Martin Haspelmath presents the first comprehensive and encyclopaedic investigation of indefinite pronouns in the languages of the world, mapping out the range of variation in their functional and formal properties. He shows that a cross-linguistic diversity is severely constrained by a set of implicational universals and by a number of unrestricted universals. The author treats his subject matter broadly within the Humboldt-Greenberg tradition of language typology, but also considers the contribution of other theoretical approaches to an understanding of functional and formal properties of indefinite pronouns. The book is organized into four logically ordered steps: selection of a part of grammar - indefinite pronouns - that can be identified across languages by formal and functional criteria; investigation of the properties of indefinite pronouns in a world-wide sample of forty languages; formulation of generalizations that emerge from the data, summarized in the form of an implicational map; and theoretically-informed explanations of the generalizations, which go beyond system-internal statements, appealing to cognitive semantics, functional pressures, and universals of language change (especially grammaticalization)

The survey of Pidgin and Creole languages( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Atlas presents full colour maps of the distribution among the pidgins and creoles of 130 structural linguistic features drawn from their phonology, syntax, morphology, and lexicons. The languages include pidgins, creoles, and contact languages based on English, Dutch, Portuguese, Spanish, and French and languages from Africa, Asia, Australia, and the Americas. Each map is accompanied by a commentary. The project is the successor to the successful World Atlas of Language Structures and draws on the same linguistic, cartographic, and computing knowledge and skills of the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig. The Atlas is published alongside a three-volume Survey of Pidgins and Creoles which describes the histories and linguistic characteristics of 71 languages. The books have been designed, edited, and written by the world's leading experts in the field and represent the most systematic and comprehensive guide ever published to the world's pidgins, creoles and mixed languages. Individually and together the books are a unique resource of outstanding value for linguists of all persuasions throughout the world

Language universals, with special reference to feature hierarchies by Joseph H Greenberg( Book )

9 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 69 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."--Jacket
