These strands of syntax had previously been examined independently, but were found to be intimately connected as part of a broader collaboration between theoretical and computational linguistics involving the Icelandic Parsed Historical Corpus (IcePaHC). The interaction we found between V1 declaratives and dative subjects provides evidence for: a) changes over time with respect to the association of dative arguments with the subject role (contra Barðdal and Eythórsson 2009); b) the gradual development of left peripheral structure and the rise of positional licensing (in line with Kiparsky 1995, 1997). We provide an analysis of positional licensing in LFG terms and account for the newly observed complex interaction between datives, subjects and word order presented in this paper.</dcterms:abstract> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/45"/> <dc:creator>Börjars, Kersti</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Börjars, Kersti</dc:contributor> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/45"/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://rightsstatements.org/page/InC/1.0/"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2021-07-06T07:25:55Z</dc:date> <dc:contributor>Schätzle, Christin</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Schätzle, Christin</dc:creator> <dcterms:issued>2017</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:title>Dative Subjects and the Rise of Positional Licensing in Icelandic</dcterms:title> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2021-07-06T07:25:55Z</dcterms:available> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
