Abstract:

This monograph explores the converging and diverging development of
nominal, pronominal and verbal morphology and syntax of Byzantine Greek and
South Slavic languages (Church Slavonic, Medieval Bulgarian and
Macedonian). Its argumentation is based on primary data culled from
medieval literary documents (11-15th c.). In nominal morphology several
intermediate paradigmatic sets between Hellenistic and Modern Greek are
reconstructed; the realignment of morphology and semantics in di- and
triptotic nouns in archaic dialects is brought into discussion. The
putative causal nexus between the reduction of the synthetic morphology of
case and the emergence of the postpositive article in Bulgaro-Macedonian is
re-evaluated. In pronominal morphology Medieval Greek and Macedonian
converged in favoring the strategy of proclisis with finite verb forms (but
only Macedonian went as far as reducing the pronominal clitics to
quasi-affixes). 

A special attention is paid to the nature of innovations in their aspectual
systems (the emancipation of the future tense from an aspect-dominated
system; the reanalysis of the old 'be'-perfect as the inferential mode in
Bulgaro Macedonian; and the rise of the 'have'-perfect in Macedonian). New
alignments in the Greek diathetic system and the issues in the placement of
the reflexive clitics in Slavic (Wackernagel's vs. Behagel's Law) are
examined. In syntax the non-finite and finite expressions of deontic
modality, and hypotactic and paratactic realizations of the causative are
studied in the framework of the gradual  finitization of the infinitival
clause.
