The Derivation of VO and OV takes a new look at the relationship between
head-final or OV structures and head-initial or VO ones, in light of
recent work by Richard Kayne and others.
The various papers in the volume take different positions with respect to
whether one type of structure is derived from the other, and if so, which
of the two orders is primary.
Different options explored include derivation of VO order by head movement
from a basic OV structure, derivation of VO by fronting of a phrasal VP
remnant containing only the verb, derivation of OV by fronting
of a remnant VP which the verb has vacated, and others.
Each paper is thoroughly rooted in empirical observations about specific
constructions drawn either from the Germanic languages or from others
including Finnish, Hungarian, Japanese, and Malagasy.
The volume consists of eleven original papers by
Sjef Barbiers, Michael Brody, Naoki Fukui & Yuji Takano, Liliane Haegeman,
Hubert Haider, Roland Hinterh�lzl, Anders Holmberg, Thorbjorg Hr�arsd�ttir,
Matthew Pearson, Peter Svenonius, and Knut Tarald Taraldsen,
plus an introduction by the editor.
