Intransitive Predication by Leon Stassen
Book DescriptionThis book investigates cross-linguistic variation in one of the core domains of all natural languages. Leon Stassen views this domain as a 'cognitive space', the topography of which is the same for all languages. It is assumed to consist of four subdomains, which correspond to a four-way distinction between the semantic classes of event predicates, property predicates, class predicates, and locational predicates. The book offers a typology of the structural manifestations of this domain, in terms of the nature and number of the formal strategies used in its encoding. The author disusses a number of abstract principles which can be employed in explaining the cross-linguistic variation emodied by the typology. In the final chapter he brings together the research results in a universally applicable model, which can be read as a 'flow-chart' for the encoding of intransitive predications in different language types.

Predicative Possession, Hardback (May 2009)» View all books by Leon Stassen
This pioneering work draws on on data from over 400 languages from a wide range of language families to establish a typology of four basic types of predicative possession. It examines their interdependence with other typologies, and explores varieties of related grammaticalization processes.
