  • The Acquisition of Word Orderby Marit Westergaard

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2009; US$ 149.00

    Within a new model of language acquisition, this book discusses verb second (V2) word order in situations where there is variation in the input. While traditional generative accounts consider V2 to be a parameter, this study shows that, in many languages, this word order is dependent on fine distinctions in syntax and information structure. Thus, within... more...

  • Studies in Germanic, Indo-European and Indo-Uralicby Frederik Kortlandt

    Editions Rodopi 2010; US$ 154.00

    The red thread which runs through this book is a quest for relative chronology of linguistic developments.

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2012; US$ 149.00

  • Phonological Evidence from the Continental Runic Inscriptionsby Martin Findell

    De Gruyter 2012; US$ 196.00

    In using runic inscriptions as evidence for sound change, we tend to focus on the interpretation of individual texts, rather than examining the dataset as a whole.This study aims at the phonological analysis of a corpus of 90 runic inscriptions on the Continent to test claims that the phonological processes which characterise Old High German and Old... more...
