Abstract [en]

Genealogical linguistics and areal linguistics are rarely treated from an integrated perspective even if they are twin faces of diachronic linguistics. In the volume Lars Johanson and Martine Robbeets take up this challenge. The result is a wealth of empirical facts and different theoretical approaches, advanced by internationally renowned specialists and young scholars whose research is highly pertinent to the topic. The volume puts genealogical and areal explanation for shared morphology in a balanced perspective and works out crtieria to distinguish between morphological cognates and copies. Lars Johanson and Martine Robbeeets provide nothing less than the foundations for a new perspective on diachronic linguistics between genealogical and areal linguistics.
