Aims and Scope
The handbook provides an overview of the current status of this research.
In its first volume, the handbook begins by presenting the historical background of the theories in which the conceptions are rooted and then goes on to deal with the individual elements of the theory in detail (i.e. valency of the verb, complements vs. supplements, theta-roles, word order). Equal consideration is given to theoretical and empirical work. The idea of dependency grammars as well as other conceptions (i.e. word grammar, lexicase grammar) are presented in detail.
The second volume begins with a comprehensive description of grammatical phenomena as seen from dependency and valency viewpoints. This is followed by chapters on the application of dependency and valency concepts in computer-based language processing. The remaining chapters deal with contrastive linguistics, grammaticography, lexicography, historical linguistics and other areas of linguistic research in which dependency and valency play a significant role.
