    Oxford University Press 1995; US$ 134.99 US$ 116.09

    The Principles-and-Parameters approach to linguistic theory has triggered an enormous amount of work in comparative syntax over the last decade or so. A natural consequence of the growth in synchronic comparative work has been a renewed interest in questions of diachronic syntax, and this collection testifies to that trend. These papers focus on questions... more...

    Oxford University Press 1995; US$ 184.99 US$ 159.09

    Suffixaufnahme is an unusual pattern of multiple case marking due to agreement: a nominal that is already case-marked for its own adnominal function in addition copies the case of the nominal to which it is to be related. The essays in this collection comprehensively examine this little known phenomenon in all areas where it is (or was) attested--most... more...

    Oxford University Press 1995; US$ 164.99 US$ 141.89
