About the Project

Project term: April, 2015–March, 2018

This project constitutes a typological study of so-called “Altaic-type” languages (i.e., head-final/agglutinating/highly syntagmatic languages primarily spoken in middle, inner, and eastern Asia). We aim to suggest two main points, as outlined below: 1) the typological features of “Altaic-type” languages by analyzing the common morphological/syntactic structures found in these languages and 2) the suitable model of description for “Altaic-type” languages.
