Adjective valency, long an understudied subject in historical linguistics, receives comprehensive treatment for the first time in the present volume. It offers not only an overview of attested examples in ancient Indo-European and Afro-Asiatic languages, but also theoretical discussion of types and patterns of adjective valency, which may in turn be applied to the world's languages in general. With abundant bibliographical information, Adjective Valency in Ancient Languages will become an important tool for promoting future research on the subject.
This book is an indispensable resource for schoolars interested in morphology, syntax, semantics, linguistic theory, historical linguistics, comparative linguistics, linguistic typology, Indo-European studies, Semitic studies, and Egyptology.
