Abstract:

Germanic- one of the largest sub-groups of the Indo-European language
family- comprises 37 languages with an estimated 470 million speakers
worldwide. This book presents a comparative linguistic survey of the full
range of Germanic languages, both ancient and modern, including major world
languages such as English and German (West Germanic), the Scandinavian
(North Germanic) languages, and the extinct East Germanic languages. Unlike
previous studies, it does not take a chronological or a
language-by-language approach, organized instead around linguistic
constructions and subsystems. Considering dialects alongside standard
varieties, it provides a detailed account of topics such as case, word
formation, sound systems, vowel length, syllable structure, the noun
phrase, the verb phrase, the expression of tense and mood, and the syntax
of the clause. Authoritative and comprehensive, this much-needed survey
will be welcomed by scholars and students of the Germanic languages, as
well as linguists across the many branches of the field. 



1. Introduction; 
2. The Germanic lexicon; 
3. The sound systems of Germanic: inventories, alternations and structures;
4. The Germanic nominal system: paradigmatic and syntagmatic variation; 
5. The verbal systems of Germanic: paradigmatic and syntagmatic comparison; 
6. The syntax of the clause.
