Abstract:

Clausal Syntax of German is the first large-scale treatment of German
syntax in the framework of Lexical Functional Grammar (LFG).
Addressing both empirical and theoretical concerns, this book examines
well-known yet still controversial phenomena that pose specific
challenges for LFG. In LFG, syntactic functions can be identified by
morphology instead of being derived from phrase structure
configurations. This makes LFG well-suited for analyzing German, a
language with relatively free word order and a relatively rich
morphology. The author applies LFG principles to three main areas of
theoretical interest: subjects, traces, and complement clauses. In
doing so, the author analyzes central topics of German syntax
including phrase structure, "subjectless" clauses, expletives,
agreement, weak crossover, long-distance dependencies, the
distribution of subordinated clauses, correlative pronouns, and
embedded clauses.
