Summary
"Professor Carstairs-McCarthy offers a powerful challenge to conventional views of the relationship between syntax and morphology, to the adaptationist view of language evolution, and to the notion that language in some way reflects 'laws of form'. This fundamental contribution to understanding the nature and evolution of language will be of wide interest to linguistics of all theoretical persuasions as well as to scholars in cognitive science and anthropology."--BOOK JACKET
