We need to bring together research into the diverse content of features in the world's languages with the discussion of their formal properties, and look for insights across sub‐discipline boundaries. This chapter offers summaries of all contributions and highlights areas of common ground between the different approaches. The selected perspectives represent major areas of linguistics where features are used.

Keywords: grammatical features; inflectional morphology; grammar formalisms; identity constraints; feature inventory; feature typology; semantics of features; feature structure; logic; computational semantics
