Product Description


'The book will be an invaluable resource for scholars of linguistic typology and of morphology and phonology.' Folia Linguistica

'… every chapter is written in a very clear style [and] the book can be used by a wide range of readers …' Journal of Phonology

'… raises a whole range of fundamental questions …' Journal of Linguistics

' … this book provides stimulating information on word types in a number of different languages, including several found outside of Indo-european, and therefore should be included in any cross-linguistic survey of word types.' Linguistische Berichte

In this book, a distinguished international group of scholars discuss the concept 'word' and its applicability in a range of typologically diverse languages from all corners of the globe. Close study of their phonological and grammatical characteristics enables us to refine our understanding of what can constitute a 'word'.
