About the Book

Among the languages of Europe spoken by bilingual communities, Catalan has a special status because of its vitality. Catalan enjoys official recognition in Catalonia, Valencia and the Balearic Islands, in spain and in the principality of Andorra. Catalan is of importance within the Romance family because it constitutes a link between the Ibero-Romance family of languages and the Gallo-Romance branches. This book will be of interest to both Romanists and general linguists engaged in comparative work.

Reviews

'This book will be of major reference value to all those with research interests in Hispanic linguistics.' - British Bulletin of Publications

About the Series

Descriptive Grammars

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.
