Scales and Hierarchies
A Cross-Disciplinary Perspective
Ed. by Bornkessel-Schlesewsky, Ina / Malchukov, Andrej / Richards, Marc D.
Aims and Scope
The volume advances our understanding of the role of scales and hierarchies across the linguistic sciences. Although scales and hierarchies are widely assumed to play a role in the modelling of linguistic phenomena, their status remains controversial, and it is these controversies that the present volume tackles head-on.
