Abstract

<b>For sale in all countries except Japan. For customers in Japan: please contact Yushodo Co.</b> <br />The Senshu University Project <i>The Development of the Anglo-Saxon Language and Linguistic Universals</i> has as its general aim the investigation of structural characteristics common to the Germanic languages, such as English, German, Norwegian, and Icelandic, all of which are descended from the so-called Proto-Germanic language, and their clarification with regard to linguistic universals provided by the theoretical framework of Generative Grammar. In order to fulfill this aim, the project has to be responsive to theoretical advances in a variety of linguistic domains and approaches, such as language acquisition, pragmatics and corpus linguistics as well as philological and historical contributions on Germanic languages in various stages of their development.<br /> The present book seeks to advance these goals in ten chapters exemplifying work on a wide range of Germanic languages and linguistic universals. It is divided into three parts: Part 1. Old English and Germanic languages; Part 2. Generative Grammar; and Part 3. Pragmatics and Corpus Linguistics. <i>Germanic Languages and Linguistic Universals</i> will be of general interest to linguists who seek to understand the nature of the Germanic languages and the relationships obtaining between them.

Subjects: Historical linguistics; Theoretical linguistics; Germanic linguistics; English linguistics
