In syntax, verb-second (V2) word order places the finite verb of a clause or sentence in second position with a single constituent preceding it, which functions as the clause topic.. V2 word order is common in the Germanic languages and is also found in Northeast Caucasian Ingush, Uto-Aztecan O'odham, and fragmentarily in Rhaeto-Romansh Sursilvan and Finno-Ugric Estonian.

Furthermore, such a comparative grammar is a necessary preliminary to any program of machine translation, which needs a set of formal rules, like those given here for the French-to-English case, for translating into a target language the syntactic structures encountered in the source language.

Contrary to previous claims, weather verbs in Icelandic are not “no-argument” predicates. Both in Old and Modern Icelandic they can appear with an NP either in nominative, accusative or dative case. It can be shown that in Modern Icelandic the NPs are subjects, and this is likely to have been the case in Old Icelandic.

Diachronically, in addition to some changes in subject case. This volume provides the most exhaustive and comprehensive treatment available of the Verb Second property, which has been a central topic in formal syntax for decades.

Her work focuses on argument structure, case marking, grammatical relations, verbal semantics, historical linguistics. The paper examines causes of the ongoing loss of V-to-I movement in Övdalian, in the light of the parametric correlation between rich verbal agreement and verb movement to I (since Kosmeijer ).

I show that the once obligatory V-to-I movement in Classical Övdalian has not only become optional, but also dispreferred in Traditional Övdalian, while at the same time the verbal. Icelandic case agreement suggests that nominative case is active in PRO infinitives in much the same way as in finite clauses, thus posing a difficult and a long-standing problem for generative (GB and minimalist) case theory and the PRO Theorem.

In this article, I examine the Icelandic facts in detail, illustrating that the unmarked and common nominative morphology in Icelandic. Abstract. Chapter 5 focuses on dative arguments that are introduced by Appl(icative) heads; such arguments have played a major role in the theory of argument structure in recent years, and they are a robust aspect of Icelandic syntax.

Assuming little or no prior knowledge of syntactic theory, Radford takes students through a diverse range of topics in English syntax - such as categories and features, merger, null constituents, movement, case, and split projections - and shows how the 'computational component' works within the minimalist framework.

The impressive range of empirical studies combined with deep theoretical insight and flawless formal rigor make this book required reading for anyone interested in syntactic change and in minimalist syntax in general.

Fulk’s Comparative Grammar offers an overview of and bibliographical guide to the study of the phonology and the inflectional morphology of the earliest Germanic languages, with particular attention to Gothic, Old Norse / Icelandic, Old English, Old Frisian, Old Saxon, and Old High German, along with some attention to the more sparsely attested languages.

This paper is an attempt to provide a case study to bridge between “narrow syntax” (Chomsky, etc) and functional approach to information structure (Kuno, etc). It has been observed that ellipsis and word order variations in Japanese are.
