Book Information

   

Title: (Nicht-)kanonische Nebensätze im Deutschen [(Non-)Canonical Subordinate Clauses in German]
Subtitle: Synchrone und diachrone Aspekte
URL: http://www.degruyter.com/view/product/181126?format=G
Series Title: De Gruyter Linguistische Arbeiten 542
Description:

Aspects of sentence construction and the grammar of subordination have
always been a key issue of German grammar description and theory. This
diachronously and synchronously oriented study focuses not only on the
creation of the ‘dass’ sentence but also on non-canonical subordinate-clause
constructions such as argumental and relative clauses with main-clause word
order (verb second, verb first) and correlative adverbial clauses. Thus the book
contributes to the issue – recently much discussed– of the relationship between
the formal and interpretative properties of subordination.
