The stories appear in transcription, and are followed by translation and an extensive glossary. Browne's famous work, first published in 1902, was the essential text on literary history in Persian studies for many years. Thus the primary mechanisms involved is not reanalysis, but the extension of a pre-existing construction. Each chapter follows the same pattern and sequence of topics, taking the reader through the significant features not only of phonology and morphology but also of syntax; from phrase level to complex sentences and pragmatics. It will also be of interest to researchers or anyone with an interest in historical linguistics, linguistics anthropology and language development.

Kreyenbroek, wie dem Zoroastrismus, der kurdischen Literatur und Religion, insbesondere die der Yeziden und Ahl-e Haqq, aber auch um Beitrage zur iranischen Philologie, der Zeit der Achameniden sowie der Geschichte und Kultur Irans in islamischer Zeit. This book provides the first in-depth treatment of alignment change in Iranian, from Old Persian 5 C. P-2 is commonly considered to lack clear cross-linguistic support; moreover, while generative accounts can accommodate utterance-second position P2 as adjunction to a left-peripheral projection, they have no ready way of accommodating P -2. It can be shown that throughout the subsequent developments in the morphosyntax, distinct components such as agreement, nominal case marking, or the grammar of cliticisation, in fact developed remarkably independently of one another.
Yet remarkably, within historical syntax, the Iranian case has received only very superficial coverage. It can be shown that throughout the subsequent developments in the morphosyntax, distinct components such as agreement, nominal case marking, or the grammar of cliticisation, in fact developed remarkably independently of one another. Each language is looked at in depth, and the chapters provide information on both grammatical features and on salient features of the language's history and cultural role. Berlin and New York: Mouton de Gruyter. Die Aufsatze umfassen so unterschiedliche Themen wie z.
The notion of Non-Canonical Subjecthood plays a pivotal role, which in the present account is linked to the semantics of what is termed Indirect Participation. It is not surprising that the results of his studies stand unchallenged even half a century after the publication of his work. The first part of the book examines the claim that ergativity in Middle Iranian emerged from an Old Iranian agented passive construction. The featured languages have been chosen based on the number of speakers, their role as official languages and their cultural and historical importance. The series is a platform for contributions of all kinds to this rapidly developing field. The notion of Non-Canonical Subjecthood plays a pivotal role, which in the present account is linked to the semantics of what is termed Indirect Participation. It was this de-coupling of sub-systems of the morphosyntax that led to the notorious multiplicity of alignment types in Iranian, a fact that also characterises past-tense alignments in the sister branch of Indo-European, Indo-Aryan.
Thus the primary mechanisms involved is not reanalysis, but the extension of a pre-existing construction. In: Jahani, Carina, and Korn, Agnes eds , The Baloch and Their Neighbours. This view is rejected in favour of. General problems are studied from the perspective of individual languages, language families, language groups, or language samples. Conclusions are the result of a deepened study of empirical data.
Iranian Journal of Applied Language Studies 1:1, 43—79. I support my account with evidence from Santali and other Kherwarian languages which offer traces of an original P 2 position and parallel developments in Iranian where the different stages in the development can be traced in greater detail. These provide the reader with concise, non-technical descriptions of a range of Iranian languages. This view is rejected in favour of a theory which links the emergence of ergativity to External Possession. This comprehensive volume offers a detailed overview of the principle languages which make up this group: Old Iranian, Middle Iranian, and New Iranian. George eds , Subject, Voice and Ergativity. In the second part of the book, a comparative look at contemporary West Iranian is undertaken.
Gernot Windfuhr is Professor of Iranian Studies at the University of Michigan; he has published widely on Persian and Iranian languages and linguistics and related languages, as well as on other aspects of Iranian culture including Persian literature and Pre-Islamic Iranian religions. He was therefore competant to undertake the study of Marathi language and place it in its whole environment. The introductory chapters by the editor present a general overview and a detailed discussion of the linguistic typology of Iranian. This view is rejected in favour of a theory which links the emergence of ergativity to External Possession. The Iranian languages, due to their exceptional time-depth of attestation, constitute one of the very few instances where a shift from accusative alignment to split-ergativity is actually documented. Along with data from more than 20 Iranian languages, presented in a manner that renders them accessible to the non-specialist, there is extensive discussion of more general topics such as the adequacy of functional accounts of changes in case systems, discourse pressure and the role of animacy, the notion of drift, and the question of alignment in early Indo-European.

I present evidence for a different hypothesis: The Santali Backernagel clitics originate as P 2 or classical Wackernagel elements. Karachi Balochi, the dialect described by Farrell, but also in dialects spoken in Iran, which are hardly influenced by Urdu syntax at all. Out of print for some time, it is now reissued as a library edition, in facsimile to capture the feel of. The original French version was the first systematic undertaking to coordinate data on Marathi languages,- tracing its evolution and development through various stages - from sanskrit Prakrit and Apabhramsa.
