Canonical Typology

Canonical Typology bibliography

Publications on Canonical Typology are increasing steadily. The list of publications and preprints available here show that Canonical Typology has progressed from its origins in morphology and syntax to cover a much greater range, including phonology and sign language.

Please do send in new items, as well as any items which have been inadvertently omitted (for which I apologise), to: g.corbett@surrey.ac.uk
