A distinguished international group of scholars analyze the concept of word and its applicability in a range of typologically diverse languages. The languages include Amazonian, Australian Aboriginal, Eskimo, Native North American, West African, Balkan, Caucasian and Indo-Pakistani Sign Language. They exhibit a great range of phonological, morphological and grammatical characteristics, enabling the contributors to refine the definition of a word against this broad linguistic landscape. The book is of interest to scholars of linguistic typology and of morphology.
