Buchwald-Wargenau, Isabel

Die doppelten Perfektbildungen im Deutschen

Eine diachrone Untersuchung

[Double Forms of the Perfect Tense]

Series:Studia Linguistica Germanica 115

    Aims and Scope

    This book is devoted to double forms of the perfect tense in the German language. The study is based on an extensive corpus of double formations of the perfect tense as they have been used over the past eight centuries. This compilation takes into account both written language (the dimension of distance) and spoken language (the dimension of proximity). On the basis of the collected empirical data, the study addresses specific questions about the structure, diachronic use, and diachronic meaning of double-perfect tense formations.

    "Overall, the book fills an important research gap as DPFs have not been
    empirically investigated diachronically until now. As the main methodological
    difficulty has been the rarity of examples of DPFs, the supply of empirical
    data is not to be underestimated for its value to further studies. In sum, the
    volume thus cannot solve the general puzzles linked with DPFs, but it offers a
    wide range of material for addressing them in subsequent investigations."
