An Introduction to Linguistic Typology by Viveka Velupillai
English | 2012 | ISBN: 9027211981, 902721199X | 539 pages | PDF | 4,3 MB

This clear & accessible introduction to linguistic typology covers all linguistic domains from phonology & morphology over parts-of-speech, the NP & the VP, to simple & complex clauses, pragmatics & language change. There is also a discussion on methodological issues in typology. This textbook is the first introduction that consistently applies the findings of the World Atlas of Language Structures, systematically includes pidgin & creole languages & devotes a section to sign languages in each chapter. All chapters contain numerous illustrative examples & specific feature maps. Keywords & exercises help review the main topics of each chapter. Appendices provide macro data for all the languages cited in the book as well as a list of web sites of typological interest. An extensive glossary gives at-a-glance definitions of the terms used in the book. This introduction is designed for students of courses with a focus on language diversity & typology, as well as typologically-oriented courses in morphology & syntax. The book will also serve as a guide for field linguists.
