Exploring the Syntax and Semantics of South Asian Languages now available from Cambridge Scholars Publishing
Cambridge Scholars Publishing is pleased to announce the publication of Exploring the Syntax and Semantics of South Asian Languages, edited by Reena Ashem, Gurmeet Kaur and Usha Udaar.
This collection offers fresh perspectives on the syntax and semantics of South Asian languages, drawing on novel data from Meiteilon, Haryanavi, Punjabi, Kannada, Malayalam, and Bangla. It covers three major grammatical aspects: namely, the status of primitive categories, clausal and nominal structure, and case/phi-agreement. All the contributions here provide comprehensive descriptive discussions followed by analyses couched within the generative paradigm, thereby offering detailed and clearly presented linguistic treatments of important issues in South Asian languages.
