Deklinationsklassen-Wandel: Eine diachron-kontrastive Studie zur Entwicklung der Pluralallomorphie im Deutschen, Niederländischen, Schwedischen und Dänischen
This study is concerned with the history of declension classes in four Germanic languages - German, Dutch, Swedish and Danish. Detailed studies in language history explore the genesis, change and structure of the present-day systems. A comparison of the language histories makes parallels and divergences particularly clear. Using many examples and schematic illustrations, the study illuminates the development of the typological variety in the Germanic languages from a contrastive perspective.
