Aims and Scope
Studying parts of speech always demands definition of the criteria for their determination. Non-inflecting parts of speech are of special interest here, because their form provides little information about which part of speech they constitute. Thus non-inflecting parts of speech require criteria not based on morphology. The articles in this collection approach the classification issue from varying perspectives, applying construction grammar, descriptive linguistics, formal linguistics, and generative linguistics.
