Drawing on novel corpus data for Old English, Old Saxon, historical Icelandic, and historical Yiddish, it shows that there is little support for an analysis which permits embedded V2 outside a narrow subset of contexts, or one which hosts both the verb and the preverbal constituent within the IP domain (‘IP-V2’). The chapter puts forward the tentative suggestion that there is only one type of V2 language, at least as regards word order in embedded clauses.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2021-03-26T13:14:50Z</dc:date> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:issued>2020</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
