Title: Principles of Syntactic Reconstruction
Edited By: Gisella Farraresi
Maria Goldbach
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=CILT%20302
Series Title: Current Issues in Linguistic Theory 302
Description:

This is a collection of state-of-the-art papers in the field of syntactic
reconstruction. It treats a range of topics which are representative of
current debates in historical syntax. The novelty and merit of the present
book is, the editors believe, that, in contrast to most previous work on
diachronic syntax, it combines the perspectives of the traditional
philological research on syntactic reconstruction with the insights of
modern syntactic theory, as it is emphasised in the Foreword by Giuseppe
Longobardi. The volume includes articles by well-recognized researchers in
historical linguistics with a focus on syntactic change. In the present
volume syntactic reconstruction is discussed from a variety of angles,
including historical linguistics, phenomena of language contact, generative
approaches as well as typological and variationist research. In the
articles, languages from a diverse range of families are discussed,
including Indo-European, North and South Caucasian, Sino-Tibetan, and Turkic.
