Abstract:

One of the principal challenges of historical linguistics is to explain the 
'causes' of language change. Any such explanation, however, must also 
address the 'actuation problem': why is it that changes occurring in a given 
language at a certain time cannot be reliably predicted to recur in other 
languages, under apparently similar conditions? The sixteen contributions to the 
present volume each aim to elucidate various aspects of this problem, including: 
What processes can be identified as the drivers of change? How central are 
syntax-external (phonological, lexical or contact-based) factors in triggering 
syntactic change? And how can all of these factors be reconciled with the 
actuation problem? Exploring data from a wide range of languages from both a 
formal and a functional perspective, this book promises to be of interest to 
advanced students and researchers in historical linguistics, syntax and their 
intersection.
