Extraction has traditionally been one of the main topics in generative grammar, and it retains this status in current variants of the theory.

This monograph deals with the locative alternation in German, a change in the argument structure of verbs like spray and load . Like most argument structure changes, the alternation is both productive and constrained: new forms may be derived, but not from all candidate verbs. This raises a learnability problem: how can children determine, in the... more...

Über den Umlaut (1843) and Über den Ablaut (1844) grew out of a review of Grimm?s Deutsche Grammatik by Holtzmann, in which he also made an excursus into Bopp?s theory of vowel gradation in Sanskrit. Holtzmann was the first to observe the correlation of guṇa and accent. At the same time he noted that loss (or absence) of the accent could... more...
