Description:

Parts of Speech are a central aspect of linguistic theory and analysis.
Though a long-established tradition in Western linguistics and philosophy
has assumed the validity of Parts of Speech in the study of language, there
are still many questions left unanswered. For example, should Parts of
Speech be treated as descriptive tools or are they to be considered
universal constructs? Is it possible to come up with cross-linguistically
valid formal categories, or are categories of language structure ultimately
language-specific? Should they be defined semantically, syntactically, or
otherwise? Do non-Indo-European languages reveal novel aspects of
categorical assignment? This volume attempts to answer these and other
fundamental questions for linguistic theory and its methodology by offering
a range of contributions that spans diverse theoretical persuasions and
contributes to our understanding of Parts of Speech with analyses of new
data sets.

These articles were originally published in Studies in Language 32:3 (2008).
