Preview

The Oxford Handbook of Language Typology provides a critical overview of work in linguistic typology. It examines the directions and challenges of research, and shows how these reflect and inform work on the development of linguistic theory. The handbook describes what typologists have revealed about language in general, and what they have discovered (and continue to discover) about the richly various ways in which meaning and expression are achieved in the world's languages. Typological research extends across all branches of linguistics. The degree to which the characteristics of language are universal or particular is crucial to the understanding of language and its relation to human nature and culture.

Keywords: linguistic typology; linguistic theory; universal language
