Scandinavian Object Shift and Optimality Theory, Hardback Book

Scandinavian Object Shift and Optimality Theory Hardback


This book presents an account of object shift, a word order phenomenon found in most of the Scandinavian languages where an object occurs unexpectedly to the left and not to the right of a sentential adverbial.

With new and original observations, it is an important addition to the fields of phonology, optimality theory and theoretical syntax.
