Adjectivity: Descriptive Approaches to Adjectival Linguistics

Approches descriptives de la linguistique adjectivale

Edited by: Franck Neveu and Audrey Roig

Resulting from a syntactic process, adjectivity refers to the adjectival use of a word. It partly comprises adjectivation, which refers more specifically to the morphological transformation of a word into an adjective. The collected volume offers an overview of this phenomenon in 14 of the many languages in which it can be observed, thus allowing a comparative perspective on the morphosyntactic and semantic functioning of these languages.
