Towards a Typology of the Siberian Linguistic Area

Chapter

Abstract

The roughly forty native languages of Siberia fall into ten small language families and isolates. Despite the great geographic and genetic diversity exhibited among the various indigenous Siberian languages, they nevertheless show a range of features cross-cutting these boundaries. In particular, the languages show a sufficient quantity of logically (and typologically) independent features clustered together macro-areally, coupled with an extensive degree of local bilingualism and language intermixture on the micro-areal level, such that it has become meaningful to discuss a Siberian linguistic area.
