The linker introduces ("links") a variety of expressions into the verb phrase, including locatives, the second object of a double object construction, the second object of a causative, instruments, subject matter arguments, and adverbs.

This volume collects together Chris Collins's published work on the linker in the Khoisan languages.

Here, Collins offers a systematic description of the linker in [lHoa, Ju|'hoan, N|uu, and to a lesser extent !Xoo and |Xam.

For each language, Collins illustrates various uses of the linker, drawing attention to cross-linguistic generalizations as well as to variation between the languages.

The work presented in this volume should be of interest to researchers working in a wide variety of syntactic frameworks on different languages of the world.
