By J. C. Wells

Book Information


Title: Interaction of Morphology and Syntax
Subtitle: Case studies in Afroasiatic
Edited By: Zygmunt Frajzyngier
Erin Shay
Series Title: Typological Studies in Language 75

the family, the phylum, or linguistic typology as a whole. The diversity
of topics addressed within the present volume reflects the great
diversity of language structures and functions within the Afroasiatic
