Latin word order is relatively free. Subject, Object, and Verb can come in any order; adjectives can go before or after their noun; a genitive such as hostium "of the enemy" can also be placed before or after its noun. A common feature of Latin is hyperbaton, in which a phrase is split up by other words, e.g. Sextus est Tarquinius "it is Sextus Tarquinius".   This paper attempts to account for synchronic and diachronic aspects of overt subject raising in English by incorporating the notion ‘subject of predication’ as a feature checking relation. Variation and Change in Old English Word Order. Garland, New York () I. RobertsVerbs and diachronic syntax: a comparative study of English.

  This book shows how the generative approach to linguistics may be used to understand how languages change. Generative diachronic syntax has developed since the inception of the principles and parameters approach to comparative syntax in the early s: it has become increasingly important in historical linguistics and generative theory, acting as a bridge between them and Reviews: 1.

This book is a collection of thirteen detailed studies on word order change within the framework of diachronic generative syntax. An initial chapter contextualizes them and introduces the theme in order to make clear from the onset its relevance and appeal. The sample of languages investigated is diverse and displays significant historical depth. This volume explores word order change within the framework of diachronic generative syntax. Word order is at the core of natural language grammatical systems, linking syntax with prosody and with semantics and pragmatics. The chapters in this volume use the tools provided by the generative theory of grammar to examine the constrained ways in which historical word order variants have given way.

Generative Diachronic Syntax: Word order and information structure Ca 13 clearly in both English and Icelandic. This confirms their main hypothesis according to which syntactic change and the constraints of information status are independent. Silvio Cruschina sets out a comparison between Modern and Old Italo-Romance.

In contrast, diachronic linguistics lacks the evidence of prosodic information, but it can still rely on the relation between discourse semantics and syntax in old written texts, as well as on the comparison with syn- chronic data, to set light on the phenomena involved in syntactic changes driven by information structural configurations.

Abstract. Syntactic data on several Vietic languages, combined with comparative Austroasiatic data and the history of language contact and typological convergence in Mainland Southeast Asia, lead to working hypotheses about early Vietic morphosyntax during initial contact with Sinitic around 2, years : Mark Alves.

While Modern Icelandic exhibits a virtually uniform VO order in the VP, Old(er) Icelandic had both VO order and OV order, as well as &#;mixed&#; word order patterns. In this volume, the author both examines the various VP-word order patterns from a descriptive and statistical point of view and provides a synchronic and diachronic analysis of VP-syntax in Old(er) Icelandic in terms of.

Introduction In the modern Japanese, as well as in all the other Nominative–Accusative languages in the world, the subject of a clause is usually marked for the Nominative Case morphology ga.

This volume presents the first comprehensive generative account of the historical syntax of German. Leading scholars in the field survey a range of topics and offer new insights into central aspects of clause structure and word order, outlining the different stages of their historical development.

Each chapter combines a solid empirical basis with descriptive generalizations, supported by a. Parallels are explored with research on verb raising and agreement, and it is proposed that, in order to be more than a descriptive generalization, the claim that some morphological property has a syntactic effect must be couched in terms that both the morphology and the syntax can refer to in a principled way.

Diachronic and Comparative Syntax Ian Roberts This book brings together for the first time a series of previously published papers featuring Ian Roberts' pioneering work on diachronic and comparative syntax over the last thirty years in one comprehensive volume.

Abstract. This overview of Munda language history puts forth a new hypothesis of how the original Austroasiatic typology of prosody and morphosyntax came to fit into the current Munda morphosyntactic template via revised notions of changes in prosody and morphotactics.

This introduction discusses current trends in diachronic linguistics with a focus on syntactic change and reviews the fifteen other chapters included in the volume. In the spirit of modern diachronic syntax, the selected articles show that very general patterns of change, emergent, multigenerational diachronic phenomena, interact with small, discrete, local, intergenerational changes in the.
