Measuring Grammatical Complexity.

Author: Frederick J Newmeyer; Laurel B Preston
Publisher: Oxford, United Kingdom : Oxford University Press, 2014.
Series: Oxford linguistics
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : English : First editionView all editions and formats
Summary:
This book examines the question of whether languages can differ in grammatical complexity and, if so, how relative complexity differences might be measured. Chapters approach the question from the point of view of formal grammatical theory, psycholinguistics, and neurolinguistics, and take phonology, morphology, syntax, and semantics into account.
