Abstract:

The problem of lexical categories and root class determination is
fundamental in linguistic description and theory. Research on this topic
has been particularly stimulated by studies of Amerindian languages. The
essays in this collection, written by specialists in languages from South,
Middle and North America, provide new insights into processes, levels,
functions, and the aquisition of lexical categories, from various recent
theoretical perspectives. The volume also addresses recent debates about
root indeterminacy. Focusing on morphosyntax, phonology, and semantics, the
contributions offer invaluable material for typological generalizations and
for comprehension of the nature of the mental lexicon.
