Provides new insights into the relationship between word order change and syntactic movement; Offers language-internal and comparative studies of word order phenomena; Examines a wide range of languages, both classical and modern.

It also demonstrates that the study of word order change (set within the framework of diachronic generative syntax) is a means to test the descriptive adequacy and explanatory potential of. This book shows how the generative approach to linguistics may be used to understand how languages change.

Generative diachronic syntax has developed since the inception of the principles and parameters approach to comparative syntax in the early s: it has become increasingly important in historical linguistics and generative theory, acting as a bridge between them and 5/5(1).

In contrast, diachronic linguistics lacks the evidence of prosodic information, but it can still rely on the relation between discourse semantics and syntax in old written texts, as well as on the comparison with syn- chronic data, to set light on the phenomena involved in syntactic changes driven by information structural configurations.

Generative Diachronic Syntax: Word order and information structure others, several books and monographs have been and are still being devoted to research on this topic. See, in this respect, Breul and Göbbel (), Ferraresi and Lühr (), and the latest issues of verb raising is not due to the loss of a V2 syntax, but to a process.

This book reconsiders the role of order and structure in syntax, focusing on fundamental issues such as word order and grammatical functions. The first group of papers in the collection asks what word order can tell us about syntactic structure, using evidence from V2, object shift, word order gaps and different kinds of movement.

Diachronic and Comparative Syntax Ian Roberts This book brings together for the first time a series of previously published papers featuring Ian Roberts' pioneering work on diachronic and comparative syntax over the last thirty years in one comprehensive volume.Latin word order is relatively free.

Subject, Object, and Verb can come in any order; adjectives can go before or after their noun; a genitive such as hostium "of the enemy" can also be placed before or after its noun. A common feature of Latin is hyperbaton, in which a phrase is split up by other words, e.g.

Sextus est Tarquinius "it is Sextus Tarquinius".The shift to postverbal particles is explained by the lexical decomposition analysis in combination with an existing word order account.

The diachronic part of the book also contains a case study on verb movement in Middle English and a case study on the role of language contact with Old Norse in the shift to postverbal particles.
