About the Author:


Alexandra Aikhenvald has been Professor of Linguistics at the Australian National University since 1994. She was a Research Fellow at the Institute of Oriental Studies of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR 198089, and Professor of Linguistics at the Federal University of Santa Catarina, Brazil, until 1994. Her books include A Structural and Typological Classification of Berber (Moscow 19867, in 3 parts) and Modern Hebrew (Moscow 1990).

Review:


"Classifiers is a superbly realized work of typology, remarkable for its encyclopedic breadth, its analytic precision, and especially its wealth of data... This book will surely prove to be an essential, invaluable reference for the future research on the principles of noun categorization"--General Linguistics


"This is a major contribution to the field. ... I recommend Aikhenvald's book to linguists in general, and especially anyone interested in language typology or cognition."--Linguist List
