Book description:

A wealth of research has been conducted on the various linguistic
phenomena found in Germanic languages. But these studies were
restricted by their use of only one theoretical perspective to analyze
one particular language. Inspired by the need to expand the research
base of Germanic languages while broadening the empirical coverage of
constraint-based linguistic approaches, a handful of researchers are
employing various constraint-based theoretical perspectives to study
multiple Germanic languages.

This volume begins with an introduction to the recent research
performed on Germanic syntax using constraint-based frameworks. It
then goes on to investigate the linguistic phenomena found in the
grammar of the German and Danish languages. Using such approaches as
Lexical-Functional Grammar and Head-Driven Phrase Structure Grammar,
contributors shed a different light on theoretical issues addressed by
past studies, including semi-free word order, partial front phenomena,
and complex predicate formation. While alternative approaches have
assumed that meaning (semantics) is dependent on form (syntax),
various analyses presented in this volume explore the idea that both
form and meaning are equally constitutive for grammatical
descriptions.
