Infinitives at the Syntax-Semantics Interface
A Diachronic Perspective
Ed. by Jedrzejowski, Lukasz / Demske, Ulrike
Aims and Scope
The major aim of this volume is to investigate infinitival structures from a diachronic point of view and, simultaneously, to embed the diachronic findings into the ongoing theoretical discussion on non-finite clauses in general. All contributions subscribe to a dynamic approach to infinitival clauses by investigating their origin, development and loss in miscellaneous patterns and across different languages.
