The first Symposium on Germanic Linguistics was organized at the University of Chicago by Jan Terje Faarlund. The notable success of this undertaking led Elmer H. Antonsen, Hans Henrich Hock, and James W. Marchand to arrange the Second Symposium on Germanic Linguistics at the University of Illinois. This volume contains revised versions of selected papers from the two symposia. The thirteen papers cover a broad cross-section of Germanic linguistics, including problems in synchronic syntax, mainly of Dutch and German; the synchronic morphology of German; synchronic morphophonology of various Germanic languages; historical and comparative Germanic phonology; language contact and early Germanic morphosyntax; and early Germanic historical and comparative syntax, with extensive reference to Beowulf. Bibliographic references are consolidated in a single Master List of References; there also is an Index of Names.
