By Bernhard Wälchli
This publication offers a typological survey and research of the co-compound development. This understudied phenomenon is largely a compound whose that means is the results of coordinating the meanings of its elements, as while in a few types of English 'mother-father' denotes 'parents'. through the paintings Dr Wälchi examines and discusses subject matters of serious theoretical and linguistic curiosity. those contain the proposal of be aware, markedness, the syntax and semantics of coordination, grammaticalization, lexical semantics, the excellence among compounding and word formation, and the constructional meanings languages can set up. The e-book makes many observations and issues approximately typology and areal gains and encompasses a wealth of surprising information. it will likely be necessary for typologists and of substantial curiosity to various experts together with lexicologists, morphologists, building grammarians, cognitive linguists, semanticists, box linguists, and syntacticians.
