Inhalt
Word order - the linear ordering of constituents in the clause - has been a fruitful area of cross-linguistic research for more than 50 years and remains the most widely-researched topic in contemporary language typology. This course introduces students to the context and rationale behind language typology itself, and the main developments in word order typology, starting with traditional grammar-based typology as pioneered by Joseph Greenberg in the 1960 s. From there we cover a number of related issues, closing with more recent corpus-based approaches (e.g. Levshina 2020). Word order typology is also intimately connected to the development of syntactic theory, and the concept of universal , which will also figure prominently in the course. The course is divided into the following six thematic blocks: (1) Foundations of language typology; (2) Greenberg ian word order typology (WOT); (3) Explanations in WOT; (4) Areal effects in WOT; (5) Diachronic WOT; (6) Corpus-based approaches to WOT. Students will work on a mix of conceptual and empirical readings and data, and are expected to give an oral presentation on topic of their choice (see below for options), and to complete a term paper of approx. 14 pages.
Pre-condition: Good background in syntactic analysis (at least equivalent to admission to MA programme)
