Chapter Summary

This is the introductory chapter of the book Morphosyntax of the Noun Phrase in Hieroglyphic Luwian, which is concerned with the morphosyntax of the Hieroglyphic Luwian noun phrase. So far, the HLuwian noun phrase (NP) has garnered little more than passing comments from scholars, and the present work is therefore the first detailed analysis of the material. HLuwian NP syntax is examined on different levels and, besides the basic formal and functional approach, the effects of information structuring are taken into account. The theoretical framework underlying the present work is Dixon's Basic Linguistic Theory approach (2010-2012), which is informal enough to accommodate a modestly attested corpus language such as HLuwian, and still offers a large range of descriptive tools including information structure. The book provides a brief overview of Anatolian history with a focus on the time during which the HLuwian inscriptions were created.

Keywords: Anatolian history; Dixon's Basic Linguistic Theory; Hieroglyphic Luwian; morphosyntax; noun phrase (NP)
