More specifically, what constitutes a circumstantial clause? To find an answer to these questions, all the major Semitic language families and some modern spoken Semitic dialects were surveyed within the project.

To find an answer to these questions, all the major Semitic language families and some modern spoken Semitic dialects were surveyed within the project.

Thus, Clause Combining in Semitic: The Circumstantial Clause and Beyond examines how different kinds of clauses combine to a text in a number of Semitic languages (Ethio-Semitic not included). Specifically, many of its chapters examine how circumstantial clauses are coded in individual Semitic languages. (Less)
