2 - Grammatical Concepts Used in This Work
Published online by Cambridge University Press: 12 February 2020
The following list is a classification of the grammatical concepts (or functions) figuring in this work, where the term concept is used in a pre-theoretical sense. Since we will be dealing with concepts, terms such as ablative or complementizer stand for semantic-functional, rather than morphological or syntactic, categories. Notice that with notions such as complementizer there exists terminological confusion in the literature since subordinators and subordinating conjunctions have also been referred to as complementizers. In such cases we have tried to follow the classification offered by the authors of the primary sources. The term “grammatical concept” is used here in a loose sense; no attempt is made to trace a boundary between “grammatical concepts” and non-grammatical or “lexical concepts”.
