This volume is a collection of 12 papers which originated from a research
project on ‘Europe and the Mediterranean from a linguistic point of view:
history and prospectsÂ’. The papers deal with specific morphosyntactic
aspects of language structure and evolution. The comparative perspective is
adopted both from a synchronic (typological) and a diachronic (historical)
angle, focusing in particular on possible contact phenomena. Therefore,
methodological key words of this book are 'areal typology' and 'linguistic area'.
The issues addressed cover such diverse aspects of language structure and
change as verb morphology, relative clause formation, Noun Phrase determination,
demonstrative systems, possessive markers in Noun Phrases, conjunctive,
disjunctive and adversative constructions, non-canonical object marking, impersonal
constructions, reduplication and early translations of the Gospels. These
topics are discussed particularly in relation to Romance, Germanic, Celtic
and Semitic languages, both modern and ancient. This book will interest
researchers in typological, historical, functional and general linguistics.

Linguistic Field(s): Historical Linguistics
Language Family(ies): Celtic
