Example text

For reasons of space the treatment is abbreviated. The value of an empirically wellfounded set of semantic universals derives from the logic of typological investigation. The point is that any typological framework, that is a framework which enables us to identify and order the variability across languages, necessarily presupposes descriptive parameters which are constant and language-neutral, in the sense of not depending on the vagaries of any individual language. More simply, to describe and compare any set of things, one must have some terms, some tertium comparationis, which are stable and equally applicable across the entire set of things being compared.
