Abstract:

The phenomenon of insubordination can be defined diachronically as the
recruitment of main clause structures from subordinate structures, or
synchronically as the independent use of constructions exhibiting
characteristics of subordinate clauses. Long marginalised as uncomfortable
exceptions, insubordinated clause phenomena turn out to be surprisingly
widespread, and provide a vital empirical testing ground for various central
theoretical issues in current linguistics – the interplay of langue and
parole, the emergence of structure, the question of where productive syntactic
rules give way to constructions, the role of prosody in language change, and
the question of how far grammars are produced by isolated speakers as opposed
to being collaboratively constructed in dialogue. This volume – the first
book-length treatment on the topic – assembles studies of languages on all
continents, by scholars who bring a range of approaches to bear on the topic,
from historical linguistics to corpus studies to typology to conversational
analysis.
