Wackernagels Gesetz im Deutschen
Wackernagel’s Law in German: Interactions between Syntax, Phonology, and Information Structure

Zur Interaktion von Syntax, Phonologie und Informationsstruktur

Wackernagel’s law explains the global similarity of natural languages. Wackernagel elements generally tend to be in second position but stay as close as possible to the beginning of a sentence. Wackernagel’s Law in German describes their particular features and serialization in the Wackernagel complex as reflecting an interplay between syntax, phonology, and information structure. The work is a contribution to typology and language change theory.
