This was fun!

The adjectives project has come to a close. The categorial status of adjectives is closer than ever to being pin-pointed and understood in terms which does justice to the observed typological richness and desired theoretical completeness.

The project thus finishes with great success — here are some of the highlights of what’s in the pipeline:

  • We are working on a co-authored monograph, The Categorial Book of Adjectives.
  • There are several papers in the pipeline and we hope they see the light of day in the coming months.
  • As a give-back to the community, we will be publishing a special typological database, The Atlas of the Adjective World, which will open and free to anyone who is as puzzled by adjectives as we are. The beta version will be published before the end of the year (i.e., in the next nine hours or so).

The core Adjectives Team wishes to thank everyone who helped in any way. One thing that remains true is that cutting-edge research cannot be done in isolation. The community of incredible minds kept us in check and we’re grateful to all.

A very [A happy ] New Year!
