Abstract:

The book deals with some syntactic and semantic aspects of the shared
Balkan Sprachbund properties. In a comprehensive introductory chapter,
Tomic offers an overview of the Balkan Sprachbund properties. Sobolev,
displaying the areal distribution of 65 properties, argues for dialect
cartography. Friedman, on the example of the evidentials, argues for
typologically informed areal explanation of the Balkan properties. The
other contributions analyze specific phenomena: polidefinite DPs in
Greek and Aromanian (Campos and Stavrou), Balkan constructions in
which datives combine with impersonal clitics or non-active morphology
(Rivero), Balkan optatives (Ammann and Auwera), imperative force in
the Balkan languages (Isac and Jakab), clitic placement in Greek
imperatives (Boskovic), focused constituents in Romanian and Bulgarian
(Hill), synthetic and analytic tenses in Romanian (D'Hulst, Coene and
Avram), "purpose-like" modification in a number of Balkan languages
(Buzarovska), Balkan modal existential "wh"-constructions (Grosu),
child and adult strategies in interpreting empty subjects in
Serbian/Croatian (Stojanovic and Marelj), conditional sentences in
Judeo-Spanish (Montoliu and Auwera).
