Halldor Armann Sigurdsson: Verbal Syntax and Case in Icelandic
				in a Comparative GB Approach

The Institute of Linguistics at the University of Iceland has reprinted a
limited number of copies of Halldor Sigurdsson's dissertation, Verbal Syntax
and Case in Icelandic (first printing 1989, University of Lund).

The major topic dealt with in Sigurdsson's dissertation is Case-marking and
its interaction with syntactic structure (X-bar theory), Verb Raising, and
argument structure. Subtopics that are thoroughly discussed include Verb-raising
in infinitives, exceptional Case-marking, long distance Case-marking, quirky
subjects and Case-marked PRO. The dissertation contains an unusual wealth of
data that raise theoretical problems of general interest and bear on a broad
range of phenomena in Icelandic and comparative Germanic syntax.


1. The sentence structure in V2 Germanic
2. Verb Fronting, Case and government
3. Infinitivals
4. Case percolation
5. Nonlexical NPs and Case
6. Promotion, theta-selection and Case

A few months ago we issued a query on linguist about computational
approaches to compound interpretation. We would like to thank anyone
who reacted to that query. Many people asked us for more information
on the PhD thesis of M.E. Ryder, that we mentioned in our query. We
have not succeeded in tracking an email address for M.E.Ryder, but
this is her snail mail address and phone number:
