    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    Based on corpus investigations of all historical stages of the German language and new dialect surveys, this volume paints a broad picture of the development and variation of comparative constructions. It reveals a phenomenon of change in the comparative cycle, which is explored between languages and with reference to the theory of language change. Diachronic and dialectical data also cast new light on central syntactic questions.
