Studies in Role and Reference Grammar (2009)

This is probably of limited interest those who read this blog. Still, I’ve been looking for this book for over five years now. I was pleased to find that the editors have uploaded the entire volume to Academia.edu.

Guerrero, Ibáñez Cerda, and Belloro (2009) Studies in Role and Reference Grammar

Studies in Role and Reference Grammar is the collection of papers given at an RRG conference in Mexico. There are a number of very important contributions here–including one that I’ve referred to a number of times that discusses middle voice systems typologically and demonstrates that middle voice cannot be derived from the active voice is many languages. The other essays, I haven’t read yet. This is the first time I’ve seen them, but I’m looking forward to giving them some time in April.
