Bibliotheca Salensis

PUBLISHED SERIES  BIBLIOTHECA SALENSIS

The aim of the Salos summer school is to provide the participants with the possibility to get information about the most recent linguistic trends and schools. Listening to lectures delivered by representatives of such trends and schools is an exciting and useful experience to the participants; furthermore, the material prepared by the lecturers is deemed to be of enormous importance both to those who heard the lectures and to a wider linguistic audience of researchers, linguist lecturers, teachers and students. The organisers have therefore initiated the publication of Bibliotheca Salensis series in small pocket-sized books, with each volume containing an introduction into or an overview of a certain linguistic field discussed in Salos.

The book gives an overview of morphosyntactic typology, which constitutes an important part of linguistic typology. The author presents an original insight into the issues in question and gives a possibility to the reader to get familiar with the general introduction to this currently intensely developing domain of linguistic studies. The first volume comprises the theoretical and terminological sections as well as the first part of the section dealing with grammatical meaning in the world's languages, viz. the chapters dealing with nominal categories. The second volume focuses on voice, deictic and shift categories, semantic verb zones.

To understand the language structure and get a deeper insight into its typological characteristics, knowledge about neighbouring languages is of major significance. Areal typology traced back to the 1920s is a relatively new linguistic remit. With recently increasing availability of empirical data, this linguistic field is gaining importance. The book presents an overview of problems in areal phonetics and provides an introduction to areal linguistics.

The Laryngeal theory, which originated from the hypotheses put forward by Saussure at the end of the 19th century, largely influenced the approach to the Indoeuropean protolanguage in the first half of the 20th century, whereas in the latter half of the 20th century it became the dominant paradigm in Indoeuropean studies. In his book Wojciech Smoczyński presents an overview of the Laryngeal theory and demonstrates its potential application for historical studies of the Lithuanian language.
