Annotation

This crosslinguistic volume discusses the range of structures used to express possession at different levels of grammar, and in a typologically diverse series of languages (including Germanic, Meso-American, Oceanic, and Australian Aboriginal), presenting simultaneously a comprehension of the possessive relation itself as a cognitive and linguistic phenomenon.
