Description:

Please note: This is a new version of a previously announced volume.

"New Perspectives on Historical Latin Syntax: Constituent Syntax
(Quantification, Numerals, Possession, Anaphora)" is the third of four
volumes dealing with the long-term evolution of Latin syntax, roughly from
the 4th century BCE up to the 6th century CE. Essentially an extension of
Volume 2, Volume 3 concentrates on additional subsentential syntactic
phenomena and their long-term evolution from the earliest texts up to the
Late Latin period. Included in Volume 3 are detailed treatments of
quantification, numerals, possession, and deixis/anaphora. As in the other
volumes, the non-technical style and extensive illustration with classical
examples makes the content readable and immediately useful to the widest
audience.

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
