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).
