In this collection of papers twelve linguists explore a range of interesting properties of `give' verbs. The volume offers an in-depth look at many morphological, syntactic, and semantic properties of `give' verbs, including both literal and figurative senses, across languages. Topics include: an apparent zero-morpheme realisation of `give' in a Papuan language; noun plus causative-like suffix expressing the `give' concept in Nahuatl; `give' and other ditransitive constructions in Zulu; the complex verbal morphologies associated with `give' verbs in Chipewyan, Cora, and Sochiapan Chinantec; the elaborate classificatory system found with `give' verbs in Chipewyan and Cora; `give', `have' and `take' constructions in Slavic languages; the expression of `give' in American Sign Language; the origin of the German es gibt construction; the extension of `give' to an adverbial marker in Thai, Khmer, and Vietnamese; the syntax and semantics of Dutch `give'; first language acquisition of possession terms.
