[Band 1] Grammatik des Deutschen im europäischen Vergleich
The Grammar of German from a Contrastive European Perspective: The Nominal

Das Nominal

In collaboration with: Christine Günther and Ursula Hoberg

This functionally oriented contrastive grammar is devoted to nominal word classes (such as nouns, adjectives, and pronouns), their classification (such as gender, case, and number), nominal inflectional morphology, and nominal syntagms, especially the syntax of the nominal phrase. The descriptive focus is on German, and the principal contrastive languages are English, French, Polish, and Hungarian.

  • A comparative grammatical description of German
  • Contrasting European languages: English, French, Polish, Hungarian
  • A detailed linguistic comparison at both the morphological and syntactic levels
  • Is grounded in functional and typological theory
