Abstract:

Mark C. Baker investigates the fundamental nature of nouns, verbs, and
adjectives. He claims that the various superficial differences found
in particular languages have a single underlying source which can be
used to provide better definitions of these "parts of speech". The new
definitions are supported by data from languages from every
continent. Baker's book argues for a formal, syntax-oriented, and
universal approach to the parts of speech, as opposed to the
functionalist, semantic, and relativist approaches that have dominated
the subject.

Contents:

1. The Problem of the Lexical Categories; 2. Verbs as Licensers of
Subjects; 3. Nouns as Bearers of a Referential Index; 4. Adjectives as
Neither Nouns nor Verbs; 5. Lexical Categories and the Nature of the
Grammar; Appendix: Adpositions as Functional Categories
