Oxford Studies in Typology and Linguistic Theory

This study of pronouns is based on more than 250 languages. It contrasts personal pronouns with pronouns such as demonstratives, interrogatives, and relatives and shows that they belong to two distinct categories. Characteristics of the two categories are introduced and examined from a cross-linguistic and functional perspective.
