Reviews

'Textbooks like Moravcsik's Introducing Language Typology are hard to find. In a clear, logical and readable style, she introduces students not only to the basic concepts and methods in linguistic typology but also to the fundamentals of linguistics. This textbook will be appreciated and loved by students and lecturers alike for many years to come.' Jae Jung Song, University of Otago
'An excellent, and highly needed introduction to linguistic typology, not only for courses that specifically focus on typology, but for all those who want to present linguistic issues in a typological perspective. It leads readers step by step from every day experience to more abstract realms of linguistics. It includes topics that are often neglected in introductory treatments of typology, such as phonology and the lexicon. The wealth of data from different languages makes the book easily usable as support for teaching across different theoretical frameworks.' Silvia Luraghi, University of Pavia
