It contextualizes the contributions in this volume around three broad themes: the relationship between syntax and the lexicon, the relationship between syntax and morphology, and the relationship between syntax, prosody, and information structure. Important questions are raised and discussed, such as: Can fine-grained categorial distinctions be used to yield a better picture of grammaticalization? Does morphology always drive syntactic change, or are there other possibilities? What are the theoretical primitives of information structure, and how can they be investigated in historical texts? An overview of recent theorizing in each of these areas is provided, as well as a summary of the individual findings of each chapter and interesting questions they raise.</dcterms:abstract> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2017-04-20T09:38:55Z</dcterms:available> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Walkden, George</dc:contributor> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:creator>Walkden, George</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Biberauer, Theresa</dc:contributor> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2017-04-20T09:38:55Z</dc:date> <dc:creator>Biberauer, Theresa</dc:creator> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
