Editorial Reviews

"As a whole, the volume is a welcome addition to the rapidly growing literature on Balkan syntax and on comparative syntax more generally. The articles are almost uniformly excellent, and the book is carefully edited. This is a worthy addition to Oxford's series of Studies in comparativesyntax and is definitely recommended reading for anyone interested in syntactic typology."--language
