This collection investigates the syntax and semantics of allocutive and honorific markers through detailed analyses of specific languages and typological comparison of multiple languages. Thus, it leads to a deeper understanding of how the relation between speaker and addressee (allocutivity) and speaker/addressee and referent (honorificity) is encoded in grammar.

Guest editors: Miok Pak, Paul Portner, and Raffaella Zanuttini
