Abstract

If you ask a typologist what linguistic typology is about, the majority's answer will essentially be that it is all about linguistic diversity, about the values various features have in the languages of the world. If you press further, many would specify that typology is about what is typical of human language and what is not. In fact, the latter seems to be a natural extension of the former.
