Hungarian is spoken by 12-14 million people worldwide. A unique language, completely unrelated to the languages of its neighbouring countries, it boasts a grammar full of complex features and a vocabulary deriving largely from Asia.
Hungarian addresses current issues in the description of languages and applies up-to-date research techniques to Hungarian. This is the first comprehensive descriptive grammar of the Hungarian language available in English.
About the Series
The rise of language typology and and increasing interest in the study of language universals have produced a large number of theoreticians who require accurate, well-formulated descriptive data from a wide range of languages. The Descriptive Grammars series provides the required framework, making cross-language comparisons possible and enabling a really fruitful interaction between theoretical and descriptive linguistics. A wide variety of well-known and lesser-known languages are covered and the information is arranged to be readily accessable to linguists working on language universals, language typology, comparative syntax, morphology, or phonology.
