Title: Latin Embedded Clauses
Subtitle: The left periphery
Written By: Lieven Danckaert
URL: http://benjamins.com/catalog/la.184
Series Title: Linguistik Aktuell/Linguistics Today 184
Description:

This monograph is one of the first studies that approaches Latin syntax from a
formal perspective, combining detailed corpus-based description with formal
theoretical analysis. The empirical focus is word order in embedded clauses,
with special attention to clauses in which one or more constituents surface to
the left of a subordinating conjunction. It is proposed that two such types of left
peripheral fronting should be distinguished. The proposed analyses shed light
not only on the clausal left periphery, but also on the overall structure of the
Latin clause. The study is couched in the framework of generative grammar, but
since a thorough introduction is provided, no special background in formal
syntax is required. Major topics touched upon are word order, information
structure, locality, and the syntax of pied-piping. The book covers both
synchronic and diachronic topics of Latin syntax, and is of interest for classical
philologists, historical linguists, and formal syntacticians.
