Abstract:

This unique volume comprises a monograph and a set of articles by renowned
typologist Emma Geniušienė which all focus on the topic of morphologically
passive constructions in Lithuanian. It is the first translation into English
of the author’s original work from the 1970s. It offers a rich treasury of
data, a detailed structural description of all morphologically passive
constructions, and an examination of the functions which these constructions
have in the discourse. The addition of modern interlinear morpheme-by-morpheme
glosses to hundreds of linguistic examples and expert editorial work have
turned the hard-to-access material into a timeless resource available for the
first time to a broad international readership. The volume will be of value to
descriptive linguists, typologists, morphologists and formal syntacticians, as
well as to scholars of information structure and functional text analysis. It
is an exciting addition to the linguistic literature and a fitting tribute to
the author.
