Language complexity : typology, contact, change( )

26 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 1,630 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Language complexity has recently attracted considerable attention from linguists of many different persuasions. This volume - a thematic selection of papers from the conference Approaches to Complexity in Language, held in Helsinki, August 2005 - is the first collection of articles devoted to the topic. The sixteen chapters of the volume approach the notion of language complexity from a variety of perspectives. The papers are divided into three thematic sections that reflect the central themes of the book: Typology and theory, Contact and change, Creoles and pidgins. The book is mainly intended for typologists, historical linguists, contact linguists and creolists, as well as all linguists interested in language complexity in general. As the first collective volume on a very topical theme, the book is expected to be of lasting interest to the linguistic community."--BOOK JACKET
Standard negation : the negation of declarative verbal main clauses in a typological perspective by Matti Miestamo( )

18 editions published in 2005 in English and German and held by 1,438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Review text: "The volume under review is obligatory reading for anyone interested in language typology and in recent trends in the field."Angela Bartens in: SKY Journal of Linguistics 20/2007 "This innovative and important study shows that the ways languages negate statements is as important -- and diverse -- as the ways they make statements."Nathan Bierma in: Chicago Tribune, Dezember 2006
Negation in Uralic languages( )

10 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 727 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The grammaticalized expression of negation is a linguistic universal. This volume deals with negation in the Uralic language family in a typological perspective. As in no other major language family before, a comprehensive typological questionnaire provides the basis for the chapters documenting negation in 17 languages. Most of them are endangered. The chapters highlight negative auxiliary verbs-the special Uralic feature-and their ways of combining with the rich inventory of other negators in different types of clauses, as well as negative replies, negative indefinites, abessives/caritives/privatives, scope, polarity and emphatic negation. Selected aspects of negation, such as negative indefinites, negation of non-verbal predicates and information structure, are discussed in more detail in five further chapters. The book brings new typologically informed perspectives on negation in the Uralic family, and it provides valuable data and insights for any linguist working on negation

A typological perspective on negation in Finnish dialects by Matti Miestamo( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This paper looks at negation in Finnish dialects from a typological perspective. The focus is on standard negation, i.e. the negation of declarative verbal main clauses. The dialectal variation that Finnish shows in its negative construction is examined in the light of current typological knowledge of the expression of negation. Developmental trends connected to the micro-typological variation are also discussed, Finnish dialects are compared with related and neighbouring languages, and relevant theoretical and methodological issues relating to the meeting point of typology and dialectology are addressed
