Comrie, Bernard

SUMMARY

Since its first publication, Language Universals and Linguistic Typologyhas become established as the leading introductory account of one of the most productive areas of linguisticsthe analysis, comparison, and classification of the common features and forms of the organization of languages. Adopting an approach to the subject pioneered by Greenberg and others, Bernard Comrie is particularly concerned with syntactico-semantic universals, devoting chapters to word order, case making, relative clauses, and causative constructions. His book is informed throughout by the conviction that an exemplary account of universal properties of human language cannot restrict itself to purely formal aspects, nor focus on analysis of a single language. Rather, it must also consider language use, relate formal properties to testable claims about cognition and cognitive development, and treat data from a wide range of languages. This second edition has been revised and updated to take full account of new research in universals and typology in the past decade, and more generally to consider how the approach advocated here relates to recent advances in generative grammatical theory.Comrie, Bernard is the author of 'Language Universals and Linguistic Typology Syntax and Morphology', published 1989 under ISBN 9780226114330 and ISBN 0226114333.
