Editorial Reviews


"The editors' introduction of the book presents a fairly detailed overview of nearly all the existing derivational approaches that have been proposed for verb-initial languages. This chapter is very valuable for those who want to get a thorough orientation on the subject. The book contributes to the linguistic community at large, as it shows a variety of verb-initial languages and different approaches to the problem. It also contributes to the research of Universal Grammar as it tests and verifies different approaches to the derivation of verb-initial languages." --SIL Electronic Book Reviews
