Diachronic Slavonic Syntax

The Interplay between Internal Development, Language Contact and Metalinguistic Factors

Edited by: Björn Hansen, Jasmina Grković-Major and Barbara Sonnenhauser

The book is dedicated to the study of the causes and mechanisms of syntactic change in Slavonic languages, including internally motivated syntactic change, syntactic change under contact conditions (structural convergence, pattern replication, shift-induced transfer etc.): It also explores metalinguistic factors such as ideologically driven selection and propagation of syntactic structures.
