Description:

The focus of this volume is the interdependence of diachrony and synchrony
in the investigation of syntactic structure. A diverse set of modern and
ancient languages is investigated from this perspective, including Hittite,
the Classical languages, Old Norse, Coptic, Bantu languages, Australian
languages and Creoles. A variety of topics are covered, including TAM,
diathesis, valency, case marking, cliticization, and grammaticalization.
This volume should be of interest to syntacticians, typologists, and
historical linguists with an interest in syntax and morphology.
