This functionally oriented contrastive grammar is devoted to nominal word classes (such as nouns, adjectives, and pronouns), their classification (such as gender, case, and number), nominal inflectional morphology, and nominal syntagms, especially the syntax of the nominal phrase. The descriptive focus is on German, and the principal contrastive languages are English, French, Polish, and Hungarian.
