Abstract:

The papers contained in this issue feature specific phenomena
characteristic of one Germanic language in question and set these phenomena
off against functional or structural equivalents in one or more other
Germanic languages.

The collection pursues this course in great detail for specific aspects of
the following languages: Afrikaans, Danish, Dutch, English, Faeroese,
German, Icelandic, Norwegian, Swedish, and Yiddish. To some extent also
regiolects and dialectal phenomena (such as South German, i.e. Austrian,
Bavarian, Swiss German) were incorporated.

There are two large domains which are looked into in great detail:
morphology and its syntactic functions; and syntax proper and its relation
to semantics. Diachronic perspectives are included, but are not the focus
of the contribution.
