The handbook provides an overview of the current status of research. In its
first volume, the handbook begins by presenting the historical background
of the theories in which the conceptions are rooted and then goes on to
deal with the individual elements of the theory in detail (i.e. valency of
the verb, complements vs. supplements, theta-roles, word order). Equal
consideration is given to theoretical and empirical work. The idea of
dependency grammars as well as other conceptions (i.e. word grammar,
lexicase grammar) are presented in detail. The second volume begins with a
comprehensive description of grammatical phenomena as seen from dependency
and valency viewpoints. This is followed by chapters on the application of
dependency and valency concepts in computer-based language processing. The
remaining chapters deal with contrastive lin-guistics, grammaticography,
lexicography, historical linguistics and other areas of linguistic research
in which dependency and valency play a significant role.
