In their subject matter and in their theoretical orientation all the papers in this volume reflect the powerful influence of T. Giv&#243;n. Most of them deal with questions of morphosyntactic typology, pragmatics, and grammaticalization theory. Many of them are directly based on extensive fieldwork on local languages of the Americas, Africa, Asia, and the Pacific. Others are based on statistical analyses of extensive written and spoken corpora of texts.<br />
