Abstract:

This volume is an important contribution to the diachrony of non-canonical
subjects in a typological perspective. The questions addressed concern the
internal mechanisms and triggers for various changes that non-canonical
subjects undergo, ranging from semantic motivations to purely structural
explanations. The discussion encompasses the whole life-cycle of non-canonical
subjects: from their emergence out of non-subject arguments to their
expansion, demise or canonicization, focusing primarily on syntactic changes
and changes in case-marking. The volume offers a number of different case
studies comprising such languages as Italian, Spanish, Old Norse and Russian
as well as languages less studied in this context, such as Latin, Classical
Armenian, Baltic languages and some East Caucasian languages. Typological
generalizations in the form of recurrent developmental paths are offered on
the basis of data presented in this volume and in the literature.
