Chapter 11. Comparative, similative, and equative constructions in Mon


Jenny, Mathias (2017). Chapter 11. Comparative, similative, and equative constructions in Mon. In: Treis, Yvonne; Vanhove, Martine. Similative and Equative Constructions. Amsterdam/Philadelphia: John Benjamins Publishing, 291-319.

Abstract

This study examines comparison constructions in Mon, a predominantly isolating language of western Mainland Southeast Asia. Comparison constructions, which I take to include comparative, similative, and equative, do not form a homogeneous class, but employ various constructions. The uses and functions of these constructions, as well as their development in Mon over the past 1000 years, are the topic of this study, which is the first to deal with comparison in Mon.
