Abstract:

This book offers a comprehensive study of the behavior of "man" in Old
English with an emphasis on word order, especially the aspects in
which the behavior of personal pronoun subjects deviates from that of
nominal subjects. Linda van Bergen demonstrates that the resemblance
to the nominal pattern of behavior is superficial only, and that "man"
should not be grouped with nominals in any environment. Arguing that
the best way of dealing with the apparent contradiction is found in an
analysis of 'pronomials' (including "man") as clitics, van Bergen
shows that there are indications that the classification of certain
other types of pronoun as 'nominal' is unsafe. This book provides
evidence that some of the constructions found in the course of data
collection on "man" lead to further insights into the behavior of
pronomial subjects, verb placement, and clause structure.
