    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2001; US$ 195.00

    While Modern Icelandic exhibits a virtually uniform VO order in the VP, Old(er) Icelandic had both VO order and OV order, as well as ‘mixed’ word order patterns.

  • Clausal Architecture and Subject Positionsby Sabine Mohr

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2005; US$ 158.00

    This book offers a comparative study of the Germanic languages.

  • Issues in Formal German(ic) Typologyby Werner Abraham; Jan-Wouter Zwart

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2002; US$ 195.00

    This book takes up a variety of general syntactic topics, which either yield different solutions in German, in particular, or which lead to different conclusions for theory formation. One of the main topics is the fact that languages that allow for extensive scrambling between the two verbal poles, V-2 and V-last, need to integrate discourse functions... more...

  • The Proto-Germanic n-stemsby Guus Kroonen

    Editions Rodopi 2011; US$ 85.00

    The n -stems are an intriguing part of Proto-Germanic morphology. Unlike any other noun class, the n -stems have roots that are characterized by systematic consonant and vowel alternations across the different Germanic dialects. This monograph represents a diachronic investigation of this root variation. It traces back the Germanic n -stems to their... more...

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1998; US$ 158.00

    In Minimal Words in a Minimal Syntax the author combines a detailed description of the morphological structure of words in Swedish with a daring new approach to theoretical morphology, based on the Minimalist Program of Chomsky (1995) (as developed for syntactic structure). The X-bar theoretic approach to word structure of the Principles and Parameters... more...

  • On the Formal Syntax of the Westgermaniaby Werner Abraham

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1983; US$ 158.00

    It has often been noted that Dutch (and Frisian) reflects a particular stage of development between German and English.

The contributions of this collection focus... more...
