Abstract:

This book offers the first account of Old Norse syntax for almost a
hundred years and the first ever in a non-Scandinavian language. The
language of the Vikings and of the Old Icelandic sagas is the best
documented medieval Germanic language and the author is able to
present a comprehensive analysis of its syntax and overviews of its
phonology and morphology. He supports his analyses with examples taken
from Norwegian and Icelandic manuscript editions. Professor Faarlund's
approach is descriptive, in a generative framework with a minimum of
technical detail. He includes a complete bibliography of Old Norse
syntax.  The book is intended for advanced students and scholars of
historical linguistics, Germanic and Scandinavian languages, Norse
philology, and all others with a serious interest in Nordic languages,
civilizations, and history.
