The book is a very interesting case study in syntactic change, well-founded and backed up by many examples. It is worth reading not only for Assyriologists, but for anyone who is interested in historical linguistics, most especially historical syntax.

Slavic languages - Slavic languages - Grammatical characteristics: Most Slavic languages reflect the old Proto-Slavic pattern of seven case forms (nominative, genitive, dative, accusative, locative, instrumental, vocative), which occurred in both the singular and the plural. There was also a dual number, meaning two persons or things. In the dual, the cases that were semantically close to each.   Indo-European studies took on a heavy ideological burden in the late s, a development that would indirectly lead to the most hideous examples of genocide and mass-murder that the world has ever witnessed. The supposedly superior “Aryans” of Nazi mythology were none other than the speakers of Proto-Indo-European (PIE). Indo-European has always had a special place in the field of Comparative-Historical Linguistics. Indeed, in the early stages of the disciplines, Comparative-Historical and Indo-European studies were practically synonymous, the former merely referring to the preferred method of investigating the latter.

Differences in syntactic projection result from changes in lexical features, e.g. by reanalysis. In West Greenlandic factives, subject‐to‐object raising was lost along with the Agree relation that accompanied the edge/EPP feature.

Factives also figure prominently in the reanalysis of Latin quod ‘which; because’ to a complementizer ‘that’.

Abstract. This paper discusses the problem of linguistic reconstruction in the Indo-European languages with particular attention to syntax. While many scholars consider syntactic reconstruction as being in principle impossible, other scholars simply apply to syntax the same tenets of the Comparative Method and of Internal Reconstruction, which were originally used in Indo-European Cited by: 2.

A more reliable method in identifying parts of speech of individual languages is in terms of the morpho-syntactic patterning of lexical items in the three major functional domains of reference, predication, and modification (Croft, ).The idea is that those items that display similar morpho-syntactic patterns in the three functional domains form a unified part of speech, while those that.
