Series Title: Linguistik Aktuell/Linguistics Today 141
Description:

The present volume contains a selection of papers presented at the 23rd and
24th Comparative Germanic Syntax Workshop held at the University of
California, Santa Cruz and the University of Stuttgart. The contributions
provide insightful discussions of several topics of current interest for
syntactic theory on the basis of comparative data from a wide range of
contemporary and historical Germanic languages. The theoretical issues
explored include: the left periphery, with a number of contributions
touching on the pros and contras of cartographic accounts; different
aspects of word order and how it arises from movement and clause structure;
the interplay of thematic relations and case theory with the realization of
DPs; and the treatment of finiteness and modal structures. This book is of
interest to syntacticians working in a comparative perspective and to
advanced undergraduates.
