On the basis of a corpus of chronicles from the 13th, 14th and 15th centuries, the study elaborates a discourse-functional model to describe the development of subject-verb order in Old Spanish, proceeding from there to trace subsequent developments up to the present day. Part I revolves around a critical application of this "Thetic-Categorical Model" to modern Spanish and an attempt to elaborate the model further. Part II is a systematic grammatical analysis of subject-verb order in Old Spanish affirmative sentences. In Part III the findings thus obtained are worked into a general linguistic theory of word-order typology and evolution.
