Abstract:

This book offers the first account of Old Norse syntax for almost a hundred
years and the first ever in a non-Scandinavian language. The language of
the Vikings and of the Old Icelandic sagas is the best documented medieval
Germanic language and the author is able to present a comprehensive
analysis of its syntax and overviews of its phonology and morphology. He
supports his analyses with examples taken from Norwegian and Icelandic
manuscript editions. Professor Faarlund's approach is descriptive, in a
generative framework with a minimum of technical detail. He includes a
complete bibliography of Old Norse syntax.

The book is intended for advanced students and scholars of historical
linguistics, Germanic and Scandinavian languages, Norse philology, and all
others with a serious interest in Nordic languages, civilizations, and history.
