Abstract:

This volume presents a collection of articles reporting on new
research carried out within the theoretical framework of generative
grammar on the comparative syntax of the Germanic languages. Divided
in four main sections, the book focuses on issues of subordination and
complementation (with emphasis on German/Dutch and Danish),
displacement phenomena discussed in relation with richness of
morphology (with special attention to English, German/Dutch, and
Norwegian, as well as presenting more general discussion of the
issue), language variation and change (studying historical English
syntax and Frisian contact dialects), and the syntax-semantics
interface viewed from a Germanic perspective (addressing ellipsis,
reflexivity, and the behavior of quantifiers).
