Contents:
Crosslinguistic Studies of Clause Combining; Editorial page; Title page; LCC data; Table of contents; Introduction; From subordinate clause to noun-phrase; On quotative constructions in Iberian Spanish; Bulgarian adversative connectives; Projectability and Clause Combining in Interaction*; Conjunction and sequenced actions; Clause combining, interaction, evidentiality, participation structure, and the conjunction-particle continum; The grammaticization of but as a final particle in English conversation; Quotative tte in Japanese; Quoting and topic-marking; Index of names; Index of subjects.
Summary: The study of clause combining has been advanced lately by increasing interest in the study of actual language use in a typologically diverse set of languages. A number of received understandings have been challenged, among these the idea of clause combinations as being divisible into subordination and coordination in a binary fashion. Connected to this idea is the nature of conjunctions, a topic treated in several articles here. Couched within the larger issue of the nature of categoriality in language, several of the papers show that conjunctions are highly polyfunctional items, and that clau.
