Abstract

In old Indo-European languages such as Old Indian, Ancient Greek and Hittite, sentences are documented that indicate the discourse-configurational word order topic – focus – verb. There are, however, many deviations. To show to what extent the above mentioned languages are on the continuum between information structure and syntax, the kind of topic and focus, verb placement and the nature of subject, as well as the relation between topic and subject, are here scrutinized.
