THE SYNTAX OF VERB INITIAL LANGUAGES
Edited by Andrew Carnie, University of Arizona, and
 Eithne Guilfoyle, University of Calgary

This volume contains twelve chapters on the derivation of and the

Old Irish, Biblical Hebrew, Jakaltek, Mam, Lummi (Straits Salish),
Niuean, Malagasy, Palauan, K'echi', and Zapotec, from a wide variety
of theoretical perspectives, including Minimalism, information
structure, and sentence processing. The first book to take a
crosslinguistic comparative approach to verb initial syntax, this
volume provides new data to some old problems anddebates and explores
some innovative approaches to the derivation of verb initial order.

Subject: Syntax: Syntactic Change in Akkadian by G. Deutscher

SYNTACTIC CHANGE IN AKKADIAN: The Evolution of Sentential Complementation
Guy Deutscher, St. John's College, University of Cambridge

Akkadian, an ancient Semitic language spoken in Assyria and Babylonia,
is one of the earliest known languages, with a surviving written
history from 2500BC to 500BC. Guy Deutscher investigates its
development over these two millennia. He shows that changes in the
language can be linked to the emergence of complex patterns of
communication required by an increasingly sophisticated civilization.
