Title: Varianten der Pronominaladverbien im Neuhochdeutschen [Variants of Pronominal Adverbs in New High German]
Subtitle: Grammatische und soziolinguistische Untersuchungen
Written By: Michaela Negele
URL: http://www.degruyter.com/view/product/180322?format=G&tab=services
Series Title: De Gruyter Studia Linguistica Germanica 108
Description:

Working on a broad empirical (corpus driven) foundation, this work contributes to
the investigation of grammatical phenomena in the linguistic period of New High
German (17th to 21st centuries) with a focus on pronominal adverbs (e.g. davon
weiß ich nichts; da weiß ich nichts von; da weiß ich nichts davon; dadavon weiß
ich nichts). This analysis follows the trend of current grammar research by
concentrating on registers of German that is close to speech.
