Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Advance Praise: "Offering a wealth of data material, the authors proceed far beyond the exploratory, presenting a coherent analysis of compositionality and conventionality, with important implications for diachronic and synchronic syntactic theory." —Jan-Wouter Zwart, Professor of Theoretical Linguistics, University of Groningen

"...I recommend this book to all scholars interested in the comparative, synchronic, or diachronic study of particles and prefixes from a morphosyntactic point of view."
—Christina Hoppermann, University of Tübingen, LINGUIST List
