The Senshu University Project The Development of the Anglo-Saxon
Language and Linguistic Universals has as its general aim the
investigation of structural characteristics common to the Germanic
languages, such as English, German, Norwegian, and Icelandic, all of which
are descended from the so-called Proto-Germanic language, and their
clarification with regard to linguistic universals provided by the
theoretical framework of Generative Grammar. In order to fulfill this aim,
the project has to be responsive to theoretical advances in a variety of
linguistic domains and approaches, such as language acquisition, pragmatics
and corpus linguistics as well as philological and historical contributions
on Germanic languages in various stages of their development.
The present book seeks to advance these goals in ten chapters exemplifying
work on a wide range of Germanic languages and linguistic universals. It is
divided into three parts: Part 1. Old English and Germanic languages; Part
2. Generative Grammar; and Part 3. Pragmatics and Corpus Linguistics.
Germanic Languages and Linguistic Universals will be of general
interest to linguists who seek to understand the nature of the Germanic
languages and the relationships obtaining between them.
