Abstract:

This is the first book on coordinating constructions that adopts a
broad cross-linguistic perspective. Coordination has been studied
intensively in English and other major European languages, but we are
only beginning to understand the range of variation that is found
world-wide. This volume consists of a number of general studies, as
well as fourteen case studies of coordinating constructions in
languages or groups of languages: Africa (Iraqw, Fongbe, Hausa), the
Caucasus (Daghestanian, Tsakhur, Chechen), the Middle East (Persian
and other Western Iranian languages), Southeast Asia (Lai, Karen,
Indonesian), the Pacific (Lavukaleve, Oceanic, Nêlêmwa), and the
Americas (Upper Kuskokwim Athabaskan). A detailed introductory chapter
summarizes the main results of the volume and situates them in the
context of other relevant current research.
