    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.

    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).

  • On the Formal Syntax of the Westgermaniaby Werner Abraham

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1983; US$ 158.00

  • Schreiben, Bildung und Gesprächby Eckart Conrad Lutz

    De Gruyter 2012; US$ 140.00

    In the primarily oral culture of the medieval court, authors of sophisticated literary texts still took into account forms of reception beyond the words themselves, including, for example, the role of performers, who they sometimes mentioned in paratexts. They also attempted at times to inscribe reception modes in the texts themselves. These modes... more...

  • The Unaccented Vowels of Proto-Norseby Martin Syrett

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1994; US$ 75.00

    The Unaccented Vowels of Proto-Norse attempts to analyse the unaccented vowel system attested in the proto-Norse period, as partially attested in the older runic inscriptions in the elder futhark. Each chapter in turn assesses the evidence for unaccented syllables of a particular category, whether inflectional or derivational, and decides whether... more...
