Title: New Perspectives on Historical Latin Syntax
Subtitle: Volume 1: Syntax of the Sentence
Edited By: Philip Baldi
Pierluigi Cuzzolin
URL: http://degruyter.de/cont/fb/sk/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783110190823-1
Series Title: Trends in Linguistics. Studies and Monographs [TiLSM] 180.1
Description:

New Perspectives on Historical Latin Syntax is a methodologically uniform
multi-authored work that traces main currents in the syntactic history of
Latin.

Relying primarily on a functional-typological methodology, in which
structural considerations of the traditional type are combined in a
complementary and balanced way with functional and typological principles,
the book approaches historical Latin syntax from a non-traditional
perspective, investigating diachronic phenomena primarily from their
discourse function as revealed in Latin texts.
