Abstract

This book presents primary data and typological comparisons across sign languages with respect to three semantic fields: kinship terms, colour terms and quantification. Based on a large-scale study of 32 sign languages from all over the world, these topics are explored in 10 sign languages, accompanied by an introductory part and an appendix with original research materials.

Abstract

"This book is the first typological study of adjective attribution marking. Its focus lies on Northern Eurasia, although it covers many more languages and presents an ontology of morphosyntactic categories relevant to noun phrase structure in general. Beside treating synchronic data, the study contributes to historical linguistics by reconstructing the origin of new types specifically in the language contact area between the Indo-European and Uralic families."
