    Other factors which have been reported to favor the spread of have, are either dependent on the counterfactual ef- fect, or signicantly weaker in comparison. Kayne, R. Ackema, P. Heeding this truly comparative perspective, the essays in this volume celebrate variety both with respect to the languages investigated and the topics addressed. Offers cross-linguistic comparison within the Germanic family as well as elucidates issues in Germanic linguistics through the exemplary analysis of one Germanic language.

    The reason is that, in order to explain the ease with which children acquire language, it is assumed that not all knowledge of any given language is the result of learning, but that instead children already possess part of this knowledge at birth the innate part of linguistic knowledge will obviously be the same for all human beings, and thus this theory also provides an explanation of language universals. Together with concomitant Vehicle Change effects this nicely explains JB[v. Postma follows Kaynewho shows that Italian s is part of the singular paradigm. It is argued that Holmbergs Generalization is a syntac- tic and not a phonological phenomenon. Within this theory, it is seen as highly desirable to be able to account for several differences on the surface by deriving them from fewer under lying differences. Very many thanks also to our anonymous referees, and to Elisabet Engdahl for help and advice.

    To show this, Julien rst sets out to identify a number of predicate tests, and then applies these tests to Scandinavian nominal phrases of various sizes. The analysis is couched in terms of true coordination in other words, the pseudo-coordinative character of the construction is derived from the properties of the phrase struc- ture itself rather than the properties of the coordinator. There was no require ment as such that the research presented should be situated within the framework known as Principles and Parameters Theory previously known as Government and Binding Theorythough it probably is no accident that this nevertheless turned out to be the case. Subjects, tense and verb movement in Germanic in Romance. On the basis of the Government and Binding Theory, a widely accepted approach to syntactic analysis, we are going to argue that the structure of a subordinate clause underlies every German sentence.

Comparative Studies in Germanic Syntax book

In spite of these Non-Burzionian accusatives, there is a general dependency relation between the so-called structural cases, Nom and Acc, here referred to as the relational cases, such that relational Acc is licensed only in the presence of Nom as has been argued by many. Some of his evidence comes from a systematic comparison between Romance and Germanic languages.

Person morphemes and reexives in Italian, French and related languages. For one thing, singular nominals without determiners, which are structurally smaller than DPs, can be predicates or arguments.

Journal of Comparative Germanic Linguistics, 7, In addition, it illustrates and discusses the well-known fact that inherent accusatives and certain other types of accusatives do not behave in accordance with Bruzios Generalization.

Boeckx, C. The central conclusion of the paper is that we need to abandon the structural approach to the relational cases in favor of a more traditional morphological understanding.

Cinque shows that a simple N oun -raising analysis encounters a number of problems, the primary one of which is its inability to express a fundamental generalization governing the interpretation of pre- and postnominal adjectives in the two language families.

However, the morphological approach to the relational cases argued for in this paper offers a solution to this riddle: The predicative Acc languages have extended the domain of the Sibling Correlation, such that it applies not only to arguments but also to adjacent DPs in general.

On the basis of the Government and Binding Theory, a widely accepted approach to syntactic analysis, we are going to argue that the structure of a subordinate clause underlies every German sentence. According to standard assumptions, the determiner and the head noun JB[v.

He concludes that regular determiners are less specied pronominal determiners. This is not to say that the papers of this volume are all focused on comparative issues in fact, most of them are notbut rather that the language family from which most of the data are drawn lends itself naturally to comparative studies.

Only if comparative studies offer more than just non-systematic side-glances to other languages can important generalizations be captured and real explanatory power achieved cf.

Verb-Second as vP First. Amsterdam and Philadelphia: John Benjamins. Specically, Roehrs proposes that both regular and pronominal determiners are the same with regard to morphological agreement; however, they differ in their semantic denotations and syntactic selectional features: while regular determiners are dened as general totality extractors and may select AgrP and NP, pronominal ones pick out sin- gle or multi-member sets and select not only AgrP and NP but also the phrase with the dis-agreeing Specier.

To show this, Julien rst sets out to identify a number of predicate tests, and then applies these tests to Scandinavian nominal phrases of various sizes. The distinction between grammatical functions like subjects or objects is mainly due to case-inflection and prepositions.

Provides a platform for the discussion of theoretical linguistic research into the modern and older languages and dialects of the Germanic family. It is argued that the effect can be traced to the semantics of the be perfect, which denoted resultativity rather than ante- riority proper.COMPARATIVE GERMANIC SYNTAX This volume contains 13 papers that were prepared for the Seventh Workshop on Comparative Germanie Syntax at the University of Stuttgart in November In defining th Studies in Comparative Germanic Syntax | SpringerLink.

The editor's introductory chapter provides a valuable summary of developments in Romanian syntax and is the ideal preparation for the studies contained in this volume, both for Romance specialists and for those less. The Journal of Comparative Germanic Linguistics also contains squibs, replies, book and dissertation reviews.
