Based on a close analysis of a corpus of spontaneous conversational Indonesian data, the author examines four construction... more...

    The twenty-one papers that make up this volume reflect the broad perspective of African linguistic typology studies today.

It has a long written tradition, which goes back to texts from the eighth... more...
