SFB 632: The Role of Information-Structure in Word order Changes in Germanic (TP B 04)

The project investigates the interaction between information-structural and grammatical conditions in the development of worder regularities in the Germanic languages. The central question of the project is how the information-structural role of a constituent influences its positioning in the clause and which factors are responsible for changes in the distribution of a given constituent.
