Abstract:

This volume brings together papers which address a range of issues
regarding the syntax of function words and functional categories in the
Germanic languages. The works offered in this volume derive specifically
from comparative studies of Germanic; at the same time they all bear
directly on long-standing problems in syntactic theory and universal
grammar. The contributions include novel theoretical and empirical
approaches to infinitives, the syntax and acquisition of Verb Second, the
structure and interpretation of present tense, the syntax and semantics of
reflexives, the relationship between expletive syntax and the EPP, the
syntax of possession, and the DP-internal syntax of pronouns. Some
contributions present the results of experimental research which provide an
entirely fresh perspective on previously unchallenged claims.
