This Chapter is currently unavailable for purchase.

The author examines some Balkan Sprachbund features that appear in neighbouring dialects of individual languages, but are absent from the other dialects of the languages to which these dialects belong; as well as some features that function in neighbouring Balkan languages of different families, but are absent from the other Balkan languages of the same family. Displaying individual typological features of the Balkan languages in interaction with other features in the structure of the DP or the clause and taking into consideration sociolinguistic factors and dialectal variation, she tries to identify structural similarities, establish links between structural differences, and shed light upon a number of pertinent Balkan Sprachbund questions.
