Noun Phrases in Article-less Languages : Uzbek and beyond Hardback
Part of the Linguistik Aktuell/Linguistics Today series
This book is a theoretically oriented, comparative study of noun phrases and their semantic and morpho-syntactic properties.
This is the first study that provides a comprehensive analysis of the nominal structure in Uzbek, and compares it with corresponding structures in other article and article-less languages.
Uzbek nominals represent a fertile ground to test the universality of the DP hypothesis and to make an insightful contribution to an ongoing debate about the functional architecture of the nominal domain in languages with and without articles.
The study shows that the ordering of various nominal suffixes in Uzbek reflects a rich functional structure, involving not only DP but also KP.
The work also discusses elements such as determiners, demonstratives, quantifiers and adjectives, and positioning of these elements within the nominal domain.
This study is especially useful for researchers interested in theoretical linguistics, comparative syntax and typology.
