John Benjamins Publishing would like to call your attention to the
following title in the field of Functional Linguistics:

Grammatical Relations in Change
Jan Terje Faarlund (University of Oslo) (ed.)
Studies in Language Companion Series, 56
United States and Canada: 1 58811 034 6 / USD 100.00 (Hardcover)
Rest of world: 90 272 30587 / NLG 220.00 (Hardcover)

The eleven selected contributions making up this volume deal with
grammatical relations, their coding and behavioral properties, and the
change that these properties have undergone in different
languages. The focus of this collection is on the changing properties
of subjects and objects, although the scope of the volume goes beyond
the central problems pertaining to case marking and word order. The
diachrony of syntactic and morphosyntactic phenomena are approached
from different theoretical perspectives, generative grammar, valency
grammar, and functionalism. The languages dealt with include Old
English, Mainland Scandinavian, Icelandic, German and other Germanic
languages, Latin, French and other Romance languages, Northeast
Caucasian, Eskimo, and Popolocan. This book provides an opportunity to
compare different theoretical approaches to similar phenomena in
different languages and language families.
