The Lingua Descriptive Studies Questionnaire
A questionnaire primarily aimed designed for grammar-writing, but with useful structural
questions that should be addressed in the field; the Lingua Questionnaire underlies
the North Holland/Croom Helm/Routledge Descriptive grammar series). This questionnaire
provides the basic questions for the description of many of the constructions found in
human language. A large number of grammars have been written based on the questionnaire.
These constitute excellent models for users of the questionnaire.
