Abstract:

Passives, middles, and other voice phenomena are issues at the core of
modern linguistic research. This volume brings together different
perspectives on voice - different theoretical viewpoints, different
languages, and different kinds of voice phenomena. The eleven articles each
make a valuable contribution to the ongoing discussion, offering new data,
new analyses, and bringing new light to long-standing issues. In
combination, they present a multi-faceted and yet coherent picture of the
topics at hand.
