Dear David and all,

My additions would be evidentiality, and lexicalization patterns.

Dear David:

Herewith some thoughts from my own subjective perspective. I haven't avoided some overlap with things that others have submitted. I'll send a PS if/when more occur to me.



Alignment typology:
-hierarchical alignment, including in relation to inversion
-split/fluid S (and more generally semantic alignment)

Reference tracking:

word-sentences, but especially with many morphemes per word

Internally headed relative clauses

Numeral system bases
3 in Coahuiltecan
8 in Pame

Hi, everyone

At the International Journal of American Linguistics, we’re planning a 100th anniversary issue and part of it will have a survey of developments in linguistics and typology influenced by studies of American (in the Arctic-to-Tierra-del-Fueego sense) languages. So, I thought I would do a bit of a straw poll and ask the typological community what areas they thought had been most influenced by data from American languages (rather than relying on my own narrow point of view). Thoughts?
