The book gives an overview of morphosyntactic typology, which is 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 intensely developing domain of linguistic studies. The first volume comprises the general theoretical and terminological sections and 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 will focus on voice, deictic and shift categories, semantic verb zones.
