Title: Word
Subtitle: A Cross-linguistic Typology
Edited By: R. M. W. Dixon
Chia-jung Pan
URL: http://us.cambridge.org/titles/catalogue.asp?isbn=0521818990
Description:

A distinguished international group of scholars analyze the concept of
"word" and its applicability in a range of typologically diverse languages.
The languages include Amazonian, Australian Aboriginal, Eskimo, Native
North American, West African, Balkan, Caucasian and Indo-Pakistani Sign
Language. They exhibit a great range of phonological, morphological and
grammatical characteristics, enabling the contributors to refine the
definition of a "word" against this broad linguistic landscape. The book is
of interest to scholars of linguistic typology and of morphology.
