Abstract:
			
The integration of traditional and modern linguistics as well as
diachrony and synchrony is the hallmark of an influential trend in
contemporary research on language. It is documented in the present
collection of 21 new papers on the history and structure of the sounds
and other (sub-) systems of human languages, sharing the common
reference point of Theo Vennemann, a leading figure in the
above-mentioned trend, whom the authors want to honor with this
Festschrift.

Topics covered in the sound section of the historical part include,
among others, regular sound change and lexical diffusion, open
syllable lengthening in New High German, orthographic accentuation and
syllable cut in English, preglottalization as ongoing change, and Old
English breaking; among the topics of the general section of the
diachronic part are the relation between inheritance and language
contact in the history of English, connections of Celtic with Basque
on one hand and with Latin on the other, and early European
toponomy. The contributions to the synchronic part deal, among others,
with cyclical phonological rules and base-identity, the universality
of the meter of nursery rhymes, off-rhymes, the theories of Syllabic
Oscillation and of Prosodic Morphology, iconicity in the coding of
imperatives, accentuation of German compounds, German orthography,
classification and nominals in a Papuan language, an intriguing case
of polysemy and polyvalency, and an Optimality-Theoretic account of
vagueness and economy in lexical pragmatics.
