Abstract:

This selection of papers presented at the 20th Comparative Germanic Syntax
Workshop brings together contributions that address issues in syntactic
predication and studies in the nominal system, as well as papers on data
from the history of English and German. Showing a strong comparative
commitment, the contributions include studies on previously neglected data
on case and predicative structures in Icelandic and other Germanic
languages, on the (non-)syntactic distinction of predicative vs. argument
NP/DPs, on quirky V2 in Afrikaans, the pronominal system, resumptive
pronouns with relative clauses in Zurich German, as well as historical
papers on word-formation processes, on auxiliary selection in relation to
counter factuality, and on the development of VO-OV orders in the history
of English. This volume presents a wide range of studies that enrich both
the theoretical understanding and the empirical foundation of comparative
research on the Germanic languages.
