Abstract:

This book shows how the generative approach to linguistics may be used to
understand how languages change. Ian Roberts explains how generative theory
can throw light on central questions in historical linguistics, including
word-order change, grammaticalization, and reanalysis. He examines the
links between syntactic change and first-language acquisition and considers
the effects of language contact. He provides numerous examples from a range
of different languages, guides to further reading, and a comprehensive
glossary. This is the ideal textbook introduction for students of syntactic
change.

Linguistic Field(s): Sociolinguistics
