Ergativity, Valency and Voice

Ed. by Authier, Gilles / Haude, Katharina

Series:Empirical Approaches to Language Typology [EALT] 48

DE GRUYTER MOUTON

    Aims and Scope

    This volume is a collection of articles concerned with the typology of valency and valence change in a large and diversified sample of languages that display ergative alignment in their grammar. The sample of languages represented in these descriptive contributions covers most of the geographical areas and linguistic families in which ergativity has been known to exist jointly with well-developed morphological voice, and some languages belonging to families in which ergativity or voice were not previously recognized or adequately described up to now.

    "In conclusion, the book reviewed is essential reading for everyone interestedin ergativity, voice alternations and valency-changing mechanisms. This booktargets a very large audience: it is of interest not only to researchersworking on ergativity, but also to undergraduates, who can learn whatergativity is, how it can be related to other phenomena found in differentlanguages, and how one can work with understudied languages that require notonly the interpretation of raw linguistic material, but also an accuratedescription of it."Adina Dragomirescu in: Linguist List 24.609
