Summary and Info
This volume presents 10 revised and expanded papers selected from a Michigan-Berkeley Germanic Linguistics Roundtable which focused on syntax and historical linguistics. The authors start from current theoretical discussions in syntactic and diachronic research, using theory to address longstanding problems in Germanic linguistics, from clitic placement and verb-second phenomena through the "Verscharfung" to the Twaddellian view of "umlaut". Each contribution relies on data situated in the relevant comparative context, Germanic, Indo-European and cross-linguistic.
