    History, archaeology, and human evolutionary genetics provide us with an increasingly detailed view of the origins and development of the peoples that live in Northwestern Europe.

    In this book, Holmberg and Platzack present a theory of the role which subject-verb agreement and case morphology play in syntax.

The theoretical issues discussed include... more...

  • Derivations and Evaluationsby Hans Broekhuis

    De Gruyter 2008; US$ 168.00

    This study shows that Scandinavian object shift and so-called A-scrambling in the continental Germanic languages are the same, and aims at providing an account of the variation that we find with respect to this phenomenon by combining certain aspects of the Minimalist Program and Optimality Theory. More specifically, it is claimed that representations... more...

  • The Phonology of Danishby Hans Basboll

    The book is the most comprehensive account of the phonology of Danish ever published in any language.

  • The Syntax of Old Norseby Jan Terje Faarlund

    Oxford University Press, UK 2004; US$ 48.99

    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...

  • Information Structure and Language Changeby Roland Hinterhölzl; Svetlana Petrova

    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...

  • Weltfluchtby Manfred Kern

    De Gruyter 2009; US$ 182.00

    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. As secular poetry is itself 'the world's work', it presents a fortunate fundamental paradox? flight from the world in poetry is always accompanied by a latent reference to the world.... more...
