Linguistic Typology refers to the cross-linguistic study of languages, which involves comparing languages in terms of their structure and function, and categorising them into types, and language families. Languages are classified in terms of the range of linguistic levels such as syntax, morphology, phonology, semantics, lexicon and cultural/social conventions, making this field relevant to work in almost every subdiscipline of linguistics. This field-defining handbook consists of twenty-nine chapters written by leading experts in the field, and covers methodology, typological profiling and categorisation. The Cambridge Handbook of Linguistic Typology provides a state-of-the-art survey of theories and methods used in present-day linguistic typology, and the conclusions we can draw from them.
