Book Information

   

Title: Scrambling ohne Informationsstruktur? [Scrambling without Information Structure? Prosodic, Semantic, and Syntactic Factors in German Word Order]
Subtitle: Prosodische, semantische und syntaktische Faktoren der deutschen Wortstellung
Written By: Volker Struckmeier
URL: http://www.degruyter.com/view/product/248291?format=G
Series Title: De Gruyter Studia grammatica 77
Description:

Analyses of word order in German often consider information structure as the most important syntactic factor. As this book demonstrates, however, prosodic, sentence-semantic, and core syntactic factors are better suited for describing the forms and functions of the middle field of the German sentence. Therefore, contrary to a long-held research tradition, this analysis rejects a syntactic representation of information structure.
