Subordination strategies in South America: Nominalization


Van Gijn, Rik (2014). Subordination strategies in South America: Nominalization. In: O'Connor, Loretta; Muysken, Pieter. The Native Languages of South America. Origins, Development, Typology. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 274-296.

Abstract

This chapter argues that nominalization, as a subordination strategy, is significantly more pervasive in South America than would be predicted on the basis of global patterns. The patterns found within South America are most consistent with a scenario of several smaller spreads, possibly promoted by a few language families with major extensions (e.g. Quechuan, Tupian, Cariban).

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
