Abstract:

This book of new work by leading international scholars considers
developments in the study of diachronic linguistics and linguistic theory,
including those concerned with the very definition of language change in
the biolinguistic framework, parametric change in a minimalist conception
of grammar, the tension between the observed gradual nature of language
change and the binary nature of parameters, and whether syntactic change
can be triggered internally or requires the external stimuli produced by
phonological or morphological change or through language contact. It then
tests their value and applicability by examining syntactic change at
different times and in a wide range of languages, including German,
Chinese, Dutch, Sanskrit, Egyptian, Norwegian, old Italian, Portuguese,
English, the Benue-Kwa languages of Niger-Congo, Catalan, Spanish, and old
French. The book is divided into three parts devoted to (i) theoretical
issues in historical syntax; (ii) external (such as contact and
interference) and internal (grammatical) sources of morphosynactic change;
and (iii) parameter setting and reanalysis.
