Abstract:

This volume presents thirteen original papers dealing with various aspects
of two related areas of research of major concern to linguists of all
theoretical persuasions: voice and grammatical relations. The papers are
written from typological, functional, and cognitive perspectives, and
contain a number of general studies as well as studies focusing on specific
issues, and offer a wealth of data from a broad range of languages. The
volume provides up-to-date discussions of an array of issues of theoretical
concern, including the nature of grammatical relations, voice in
agent/patient systems, the expression vs. non-expression of participant
roles, and personal vs. impersonal passives. The papers in the volume
demonstrate that investigations into the nature of voice and grammatical
relations can still yield fresh theoretical and typological insights.
