Development of intra- and inter-clausal dependency in Hebrew

MyBook is a cheap paperback edition of the original book and will be sold at uniform, low price.
This Chapter is currently unavailable for purchase.

The chapter relies on the notion of dependency marking as a framework for a reinterpretation of data on syntactic development in Hebrew from early childhood to adulthood. Following a short outline of how grammatical dependencies are realized in Hebrew, I explore the emergence of dependencies in both simple (single-clause) and complex (clause-combining) syntax. In each case, concern is with the transition from isolated, to non-dependent, to partially dependent, and eventually to fully dependent combinations as markers of functional dependency, in the sense of integration of how events are represented verbally both within and across clause boundaries.
