Title: Konjugationsklassenwandel [Conjugation class change]
Subtitle: Prinzipien des Ab-, Um- und Ausbaus verbalflexivischer Allomorphie in germanischen Sprachen
Written By: Antje Dammel
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/cont/fb/sk/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783110240344-1
Series Title: Studia Linguistica Germanica 103
Description:

Conjugation classes, e.g. strong verbs with change of vowel versus weak
verbs with a t-suffix to express tense represent formal differentiations
without functional equivalent. Thus, at first glance, they appear to
complicate the language system. This study shows that conjugation classes
by no means must be necessarily downgraded in the history of Germanic
languages but rather maintained and reorganized. On the other hand it shows
that their change is not arbitrary but steered by principles, e.g. linked
functionally to grammatical categories such as tense.
