More specifically, it is claimed that representations... more...

This is the first account of Old Norse syntax for almost a hundred years and the first ever in a non-Scandinavian language.

He includes a complete... more...
- De Gruyter 2009; US$ 182.00
The book addresses one of the most prominent and widely discussed topics in diachronic syntax, namely, word order variation and change in older Germanic. It presents a novel approach that explains these issues not in terms of parameters and parameter change or in terms of competition between two grammars, but in terms of competition between information-structurally... more...

The study is devoted to the thought patterns and forms of presentation of transience and renunciation of the world in lyric and epic poetry from the 12th to 15th centuries.
