Complexity, Isolation, and Variation
Ed. by Baechler, Raffaela / Seiler, Guido
Series:linguae & litterae 57
Aims and Scope
Complexity of grammatical structure has become a center of interest in recent typological and dialectological research. The contributions of the present volume discuss structural complexity from the perspective of language variation and change. Particular attention is paid to the hypothesis that languages and varieties spoken by small, isolated communities tend to display greater complexity than others.
