Title: Balinese morphosyntax
Subtitle: A lexical-functional approach
Written By: I Wayan Arka
Description:

This book is the first comprehensive study of Balinese morphosyntax from a lexicalist perspective.  It discusses intricate facts in the relationship between morphosyntax and semantics in Balinese and highlights the significance of the facts with regard to linguistic theory and language typology.  It provides in-depth discussions on important topics in linguistics: split intransitivity, grammatical relations (subjecthood and termhood), phrase structures, argument structures, reflexive binding and morpholexical derivations (passivisation, applicativisation and causativisation).  This book is an essential reference for students and researchers (theoreticians, typologists and Austronesianists).
