Transeurasian verbal morphology in a comparative perspective: Genealogy, contact, chance
2010 (English)Collection (editor) (Refereed)
The volume brings together prominent specialists in the field who explore potentially shared features of verbal morphology among the Transeurasian languages and search for the best way to explain them. Important issues dealt with include the following: How useful is verbal morphology really in establishing genealogical relations among languages? Is there concrete evidence for cognate verbal morphology across Transeurasian languages? Is it possible to draw wider connections with Indo-European and Uralic? How to distinguish between genealogical retention and copying of verbal morphology? in which ways can typological similarities be significant in this context?
