This book is a new contribution to syntactic theory. The reader will
find a clear overview of the central facts concerning Brazilian
Portuguese (BP) word order, as well as a comparison to the facts in
other Romance languages (Spanish, Italian, and French). In relating
other Romance languages to BP, the book shows that BP word order has a
number of interesting restrictions that set this language clearly
apart from the other Romance languages. This volume provides accounts
for declaratives and interrogatives found not only in BP but also in
the other Romance languages discussed, taking into consideration
parametric differences among the languages studied.

Old Church Slavonic Grammar

Seventh Revised Edition.
23 x 15,5 cm. xvi, 264 pages.
Cloth. DM 69,90 / EUR 34,95 / �S 510,-- / sFr 62,-- / *US$ 34.95

*for orders placed in North America only


This description of the structure of Old Church Slavonic is intended
to present fully the important data about the language, without citing
all the minutiae of attested variant spellings. The facts have been
treated from the point of view of structural linguistics, but
pedagogical clarity has taken precedence over the conciseness required
for elegant formal description.

Chapter Six is an entirely new addition to the original text. It
contains a sketch of the development from Late Indo-European to Late
Common Slavic and will be of interest not only to Slavists but to
linguists in general.

>From the Contents

External history and sources
The old church slavonic writing systems
The sound system
Declension
Excursus
Conjugation
Notes on syntax and vocabulary
A sketch history
