About the book:

This series is devoted to the study of the basic morphosyntactic and morphosemantic features used in the about thirty East Caucasian languages to construe "simple sentences". The approach proposed here is derived from the theories of Cognitive and Functional Grammar and substantiated in terms of a "Grammar of Scenes and Scenarios" (GSS). This approach derives grammatical categories that are obligatory to produces an utterance both from their cognitive, functional, and communicative background as well as from the evidence given by language typology. The PKK series tries to analyze the grammar of all East Caucasian languages with respect to the prerogatives of GSS. The aim is to give an overall view of the operating systems dominating these languages as well as their assumed proto-language ("Proto-East Caucasian"). Consequently, the following aspects are treated volume by volume: Vol. 1.: Foundations of GSS and the East Caucasian (linguistic) area, vol. 2: The Person, vol. 3: Noun Classification, vol. 4: Case systems, vol. 5: Scenes and scenarios, vol. 6: Space and time, vol. 7: Modalization. In a more traditional mood, these volumes can be regarded as a contribution to a comparative syntax of East Caucasian.
