Abstract:

In The Genitive Case in Dutch and German: A Study of Morphosyntactic Change in
Codified Languages, Alan K. Scott offers an account of the tension that exists
between morphosyntactic change and codification, focusing on the effect that
codification has had on the genitive case and alternative constructions in
both languages. On the basis of usage data from a wide variety of registers,
from the 16th century to the present day, Alan K. Scott demonstrates that
codification has preserved obsolescent morphological genitive constructions in
Dutch and German while suppressing their potential replacements, and shows
that, despite its association with norm-conformant language, the genitive is
used to a surprisingly large extent in informal early modern Dutch and modern
German sources.
