Title: Clausal Syntax of German
Written By: Judith Berman
Series Title: Studies in Constraint-Based Lexicalism
Description:

Clausal Syntax of German is the first large-scale treatment of German
syntax in the framework of Lexical Functional Grammar (LFG). Addressing
both empirical and theoretical concerns, this book examines well-known yet
still controversial phenomena that pose specific challenges for LFG. In
LFG, syntactic functions can be identified by morphology instead of being
derived from phrase structure configurations. This makes LFG well-suited
for analyzing German, a language with relatively free word order and a
relatively rich morphology. The author applies LFG principles to three
main areas of theoretical interest: subjects, traces, and complement
clauses. In doing so, the author analyzes central topics of German syntax
including phrase structure, "subjectless" clauses, expletives, agreement,
weak crossover, long-distance dependencies, the distribution of
subordinated clauses, correlative pronouns, and embedded clauses.
