Today we take some time to suggest a few books that conlangers should check out.
- Heine, B., & Kuteva, T. (2002). World lexicon of grammaticalization. Cambridge University Press.
Bybee, J., Perkins, R., & Pagliuca, W. (1994). The evolution of grammar: Tense, aspect, and modality in the languages of the world. University of Chicago Press.
Dixon, R. M. (2012). Basic Linguistic Theory (Volumes 2 and 3). Oxford University Press.
- The Cambridge Textbooks in Linguistics (“Red Books”) and the Oxford Linguistics collection. (Somehow we mixed these two together)
