Abstract:

This book seeks to answer the questions: why do grammars change, and
why is the rate of such change so variable? A principal focus is on
changes in English between the Anglo-Saxon and early modern
periods. The author frames his analysis in a comparative framework
with extended discussions of language change in a wide range of other
Indo-European languages. He deploys Chomsky's minimalist framework in
a fruitful marriage of comparative and theoretical linguistics within
an argument that will be accessible to practitioners in both fields.
