This volume contains ten revised and expanded papers selected from the
dozens presented at the last Michigan-Berkeley Germanic Linguistics
Roundtable, five contributions each from syntax (by Werner Abraham, Sarah
Fagan, Isabella Barbier, John te Velde, and Ruth Lanouette) and historical
linguistics (by Garry Davis and Gregory Iverson, Mary Niepokuj, Neil
Jacobs, Edgar Polome, and David Fertig).
The authors start from current theoretical discussions in syntactic and
diachronic research, using theory to address longstanding but still current
problems in Germanic linguistics, from clitic placement and verb-second
phenomena through the 'Verschurfung' to the Twaddellian view of umlaut.
Each contribution relies on careful sifting of data situated in the
relevant comparative context, Germanic, Indo-European and cross-linguistic.
