Abstract:

This research monograph is an empirical and theoretical study of
clause-final verbal complexes in the history of German. The book presents
corpus studies of Middle High German and Early New High German and surveys
of contemporary varieties of German. These investigations of the verbal
complex address not only the frequencies of the word orders, but also the
linguistic factors that influence them. On that empirical basis, the
analysis adopted is the classic verb-final approach, with alternative
orders derived by Verb (Projection) Raising. Verb Raising in these
historical and modern varieties is subject to morphological, prosodic, and
sociolinguistic restrictions, suggesting that the orders in question are
not driven by narrow syntax but by their effects at the interface with
phonology. This study will be of interest to students and scholars studying
the diachronic syntax of German, West Germanic dialect syntax, and the
relationship between prosody and word order.
