Title: Finiteness
Subtitle: Theoretical and empirical foundations
Written By: Irina Nikolaeva
URL: http://www.oup.com/uk/catalogue/?ci=9780199213740
Description:

This book explores the nature of finiteness, clarifying what it is and
establishing its usefulness and limitations. Leading scholars look from a
range of perspectives at how finiteness is conceived in formal and
functional theories of grammar; at its cross-linguistic manifestations; at
the finite/nonfinite opposition in individual languages; and at the role of
finiteness in linguistic change and linguistic development. The book is
written and structured to appeal to scholars and students of syntax and
general linguistics at graduate level and above.
