Abstract:

The twenty-one papers that make up this volume reflect the broad
perspective of African linguistic typology studies today. Where previous
volumes would present language material from a very restricted area and
perspective, the present contributions reflect the global interest and
orientation of current African linguistic studies. The studies are nearly
all implicational in nature.

Based upon a detailed survey of a particular linguistic phenomenon in a
given language or language area conclusions are drawn about the general
nature about this phenomenon in the languages of Africa and beyond. They
represent as such a first step that may ultimately lead to a more thorough
understanding of African linguistic structures. This approach is well
justified. Taking the other road, attempting to pick out linguistic details
from often fairly superficially documented languages runs the risk that the
data and its implications for the structure investigated might be
misunderstood. Consequentially only very few studies of this nature giving
the very broad perspective, the overview of a particular structure type
covering the whole African continent are represented here.
