Description:

"New Perspectives on Historical Latin Syntax: Constituent Syntax (Adverbial
Phrases, Adverbs, Mood, Tense)" is the second of four volumes dealing with
the long-term evolution of Latin syntax, roughly from the 4th century BCE
up to the 6th century CE. This volume, along with Volume 3, comprises
chapters dealing with structure and evolution of syntactic phenomena below
the level of the sentence. Topics treated in this volume include adverbs,
adverbial phrases, mood/modality and tense/aspect. Chapters are
distinguished by their depth of treatment, clear style and ample
illustration with original citations. Their readability is enhanced by the
non-technical presentation which characterizes all volumes in the set.

Key features:

- first publication to investigates the long-term syntactic history of Latin
- generally accessible to linguists and non-linguists
- theoretically coherent, formulated in functional-typological terms
- does not require reading fluency in Latin, since all examples are
translated into English
