Edited by Vera Lee-Schoenfeld and Dennis Ott

Oxford Studies in Comparative Syntax

  • Showcases state-of-the-art research on predicate fronting and the parameters governing its realization in a range of diverse languages
  • Analyzes a range of typologically distinct languages including English, German, Malagasy, Niuean, Ch'ol, Asante, Twi, Limbum, Krachi, Hebrew, and multiple sign languages
  • Brings the field of comparative syntax one step closer to understanding the uniformity and variation underlying the wider cross-linguistic picture
