Title: Balkan Sprachbund Morpho-syntactic Features
Written By: Olga Miseska Tomic
URL: http://www.springer.com/1-4020-4487-9
Series Title: Studies in Natural Language and Linguistic Theory
Description:

This book discusses the morpho-syntactic Balkan Sprachbund features in nine
languages in which they are most numerous. It contains a wealth of Balkan
linguistic material, collected from both the existing literature sources
and from the author's own field work. Rather than making parallel lists of
convergent phenomena, the author focuses on displaying similarities and
differences in the representation of the most widely acknowledged Balkan
Sprachbund morpho-syntactic features and their interaction with other
features in the structure of the DP or the sentence of individual
languages. The book stands at the intersection of traditional and formal
linguistics. The use of a minimally technical terminology allows for a
cross-framework accessibility of the data.

The book will be of interest to researchers and students working in the
fields of comparative linguistics and Macedonian, Bulgarian,
Serbo-Croatian, Romanian, Megle-no-Romanian, Aromanian, Albanian, Modern
Greek and Balkan Romani languages.
