Introducing Language Typology Language typology identifies similarities and differences among languages of the world. This textbook provides an introduction to the subject which assumes minimal prior knowledge of linguistics. It offers the broadest coverage of any introductory book, including sections on historical change, language acquisition.

    In our book Simpler Syntax (Culicover and Jackendo ), Ray Jackendo and I assume that the grammatical func-tions Subject and Object are universal, and play an integral role in the de-scription of the form/meaning correspondences that comprise what we call ‘language’.
