This handbook aims to be regarded as authoritative, or at least representative of the field of linguistic typology. It provides a critical, state-of-the-art overview of major areas of linguistic typology. Part I of the handbook serves as the historical, theoretical, and methodological backbone for the rest of the volume. Part II deals with various theoretical dimensions of linguistic typology. Part III discusses the typological research on various grammatical areas and topics, ranging from phonology to semantics, and from person marking to voice. The articles in Part IV examine the application of linguistic typology to other areas of linguistics, or the interface between linguistic typology and other sub-disciplines of linguistics.
