This volume's central concern is grammatical voice, traditionally known as diathesis, and its classical manifestations as Active, Middle, and Passive. Various perspectives are represented: the typological-universal view, voice and language acquisition, the relationship between voice and ergativity, diachronic perspectives, and the interaction of morphology and discourse.
