Abstract

In this methodological article I discuss the advantages of using parsed corpora (treebanks) for historical linguistics research. I argue that even apparently simple, descriptive questions such as how often different word orders occur cannot be adequately answered without the use of treebanks, which make the underlying theoretical assumptions explicit. I demonstrate this concretely with a case study from word order in participle clauses in the New Testament.
