New Perspectives on Historical Latin Syntax: Syntax of the sentence, Volume 1
Philip Baldi, Pierluigi Cuzzolin
Walter de Gruyter, 2009 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 561 pages
This is the first of a multi-volume set dealing with the long-term evolution of Latin syntax, roughly from the 4th century BCE up to the 6th century CE. There are six pivotal chapters in this volume, each dealing with a subject which is critical to the understanding of the syntactic system. Topics covered include contact phenomena (from Greek and Semitic), the development of word order, particles, coordination, and the syntax of questions and answers. The volume is introduced by the editors in an explanatory "Prolegomena", and the textual parameters are set in a chapter on literary genres and sociolinguistics.
