  "abstract": "<p>Grammatical forms often appear to have multiple functions or meanings, in a way that differs strikingly across languages, although there are also clear similarities. The semantic-map method has been proposed to summarize similarities and differences between languages in the way they code grammatical meanings, and this paper provides an authoritative overview of the method.</p>",
