Description

The two volumes deal with cross-linguistic variation in valency classes in terms of argument coding and argument alternations. The first systematic typological attempt to uncover the universal and the language-particular in this area, the work includes synoptic introductory articles, 30 in-depth questionnaire-based studies of valency classes in languages from across the world, and featured articles by leading scholars who helped shape the field.
