Serial Verb Constructions

A Cross-Linguistic Typology

Alexandra Y. Aikhenvald and R.M.W. Dixon

Explorations in Linguistic Typology

A serial verb construction is a sequence of verbs which acts together as one. This oustanding book is the first to study the phenomenon across languages of different typological and genetic profiles. The authors, all experienced linguistic fieldworkers, follow a unified typological approach and avoid formalisms.
