Abstract:

This volume offers a selection of papers from the Eleventh
International Conference on English Historical Linguistics held at the
University of Santiago de Compostela. From the rich programme (over
130 papers were given during the conference), the present twelve
papers were carefully selected to reflect the state of current
research in the fields of English historical syntax and
morphology. Some of the issues discussed are the emergence of
viewpoint adverbials in English and German, changes in noun phrase
structure from 1650 to the present, the development of the progressive
in Scots, the passivization of composite predicates, the loss of V2
and its effects on the information structure of English, the
acquisition of modal syntax and semantics by the English verb WANT, or
the use of temporal adverbs as attributive adjectives in the Early
Modern period. Many of the articles tackle questions of change through
the use of methodological tools like computerized corpora. The
theoretical frameworks adopted include, among others,
grammaticalization theory, Dik's model of functional grammar,
construction grammar and Government & Binding Theory.
