    Almost all languages have some grammatical means for categorizing nouns. This book provides a comprehensive and original analysis of noun categorization devices all over the world. It will interest typologists, those working in the fields of morphosyntactic variation and lexical semantics, as well as anthropologists and all other scholars interested in the mechanisms of human cognition. The Trans New Guinea languages, although highly diverse, as might be expected in view of the large number of widely dispersed languages, tend toward moderate complexity, in a mixed agglutinative, weakly synthetic type, as in Tairora (Vincent ): rumpa-ti-mi-te-ro (tie-1SG OBJ-BEN-PERF-3 SG SBJ PAST, "he had tied it for me").

[Nils Magnus Holmer] -- Some comparison with Australian languages. Following this line of approach, he engaged in a typological comparison of the languages of the Stock, extending thi, ro include the languages which are distantly related to the latter (see ), and also to other languages in New Guinea whose structure appeared to display similarities with those of languages of the by: 2.

I suggest two parameters to distinguish the four language groups and propose a new typology of comparative construction. a Papuan language of Papua New Guinea. of their language. The book. comparative linguistics course he had been teaching at the University of Papua New Guinea and the University of the South Pacific, he stated that one motivation for his introductory textbook was to demonstrate that the comparative method could be applied universally ().

Whereas the monoclausal exceed comparative has a distinctly insular distribution, the conjoined exceed comparative is characteristic of a small number of Papuan and Austronesian languages in a micro-region in the eastern half of New Guinea.

Given the vastness of the region and limited previous overviews, this volume focuses on an account of the families and major languages of each area within the region, including brief grammatical descriptions of many of the languages.

The volume also includes a typological overview of Papuan languages, and a chapter on Austronesian-Papuan contact. This new four volume collection on Linguistic Typology will be an essential source of reference for linguists of all theoretical convictions.

It will provide a state-of-the-art overview of work on linguistic typology, its history, its methodology, theoretical foundations and major achievements. The first part focusses on linguistic typology, covering case markers used on verbs, argument-determined constructions, unusual meanings of causatives, the semantic basis for a typology, word-class-changing derivations, speech reports and semi-direct speech.

Analyzing a previously undescribed language is fraught with difficulties. If a language has numerous homonymous forms, a linguist might try and establish connections between these, based on what is judged typologically plausible.

Comparative evidence from related languages can also be handy. Typological studies help comparative linguistics; and comparative linguistics may suggest hints as. Duponceau, Peter S.
