The aim of the book is to bridge the gap between the study of the Baltic languages, on the one hand, and the current agenda of the theoretical and typological approaches to language, on the other. В сборнике представлены результаты системного лексико-типологического исследования, выполненного на широком языковом материале: на основе единой анкеты описана семантическая зона движения и нахождения в воде зона плавания, или aquamotion для более чем сорока языков, представляющих самые разные языковые семьи и ареалы — славянские, балтийские, романские, германские, уральские, тюркские, семитские, кавказские, африканские и др. In my lecture I introduce the major typological peculiarities of Slavic aspect and presents the results of a multivariate areal-typological study of prefixal perfectivization in Slavic, Baltic, Yiddish, Hungarian, Ossetic and Kartvelian languages based on a uniform set of morphological and functional-semantic parameters. There exist some largely outdated grammars written in Russian and Latgalian in the first half of the twentieth century Skrinda 1908, Trasuns 1921, Strods 1922 , and the only modern description is the short and far from comprehensive sketch by Nau 2011a , apart from the grammatical handbook by Bukšs and Placinskis 1973 and a comparative study by Lelis 1961. As an example, we could cite the introduction of dedicated second plural impera tive forms in standard Latvian, e. This collective monograph is prepared by a group of Russian linguists sharing the interest to typology, formal models of grammar and interface phenomena.
Baltic languages have only marginally featured in the discourse of theoretical linguistics and linguistic typology. These considerations have shaped the methodological component of the present monograph. A Short Grammar of Latvian, by Mathiassen 1997 , is marred by numerous mistakes and should be used with caution.

The book aims to reconnect Baltic linguistics and the current agenda of the theoretical and typological study of language. Figure 1 pictures the global splits that have occurred within the former Baltic dialect continuum and that are most relevant with respect to their contemporary stage for the most recent diachronically oriented survey, cf. I also discuss a tentative diachronic scenario explaining how at least a subpart of the synthetic interrogative marking in Abaza and its close relative Abkhaz could have emerged via univerbation of pseudocleft focus constructions. Most authors share the derivational approach to word order systems and work out the hypothesis that some basic word order can be established for scrambling languages too.
The book is intended for a broad linguistic audience, including typologists and theoretical linguists. The internal division of these sections will not be entirely identical, mainly due to the differences between the two groups. Lettische Grammatik, by Holst 2001 , is idio syncratic and should be used with a certain caution. Of course, we cannot supply a fully comprehensive account of all aspects of these languages.

The focus of our research interest is in the interaction of formal syntax and information structure and on word order systems of scrambling languages which are described in terms of linear-accent transformations, i. Sources presented here have been supplied by the respective publishers. The volume comprises papers dealing with various aspects of the typology of Slavic, Baltic, and Balkan primarily Albanian languages: their phonology and prosody, morphology, syntax, lexicon, and their interactions. We analyse morphological causative verbs in Lithuanian on the basis of an annotated corpus, studying the distribution of different causative suffixes across the valency types of base verbs, as well as the argument structure of the causatives themselves. On the other hand, all contributions are informed in the relevant contemporary linguistic theories and in the advances of linguistic typology.
On the other hand, most theoretically oriented work on morphology, concerned with both individual languages and cross-linguistic comparison, has largely abandoned the traditional morpheme-based approaches of the American structuralists of the first half of the 20 th century shifting its attention to paradigmatic relations between morphologically relevant units, which themselves can be larger than traditional words. It regards linguistic variation in its synchronic and diachronic dimensions as well as in its social contexts as important sources of insight for a better understanding of the design of linguistic systems and the ecology and evolution of language. These languages possess a cislocative verbal prefix, which, in addition to marking the spatial meaning of speaker-orientation, systematically occurs in polyvalent verbs when the object outranks the subject on the person hierarchy.

Riga : Latviešu valodas aģentūra, 2012. The series considers itself a forum for cutting-edge research based on solid empirical data on language in its various manifestations, including sign languages. We also ask for the extent to which perfects in Baltic and Slavic comply with accepted parameters of grammaticalization. Remarkably poorer is the state of the arts concerning phonology. Tamian and Livonian dialects in the north and northwest are most affected by Finnic contact.
The ultimate choice in favor of West Aukštaitian was not only due to the prestige of this variety, established mainly in Prussian Lithuania, but also to the fact that this dialect is phonetically the most conservative, which seemed to make it particularly fit to serve as a metadialectal standard.
