Neocleous, Nicolaos and Ioanna Sitaridou 2022 Never just contact: The rise of final auxiliaries in Asia Minor GreekDiachronica 39:3, pp. 369–408 | Article
In this article, we investigate the diachronic developments that gave rise to final auxiliaries – a hallmark of head-final syntax – in Asia Minor Greek, a cluster of Greek varieties originally spoken in the area historically known as Asia Minor (present-day Anatolia, Turkey) within the recent… read more
Sitaridou, Ioanna 2019 Chapter 6. Against V2 in Old SpanishThe Determinants of Diachronic Stability, Breitbarth, Anne, Miriam Bouzouita, Lieven Danckaert and Melissa Farasyn (eds.), pp. 131–156 | Chapter
In this article, using rich data from 13th C. Spanish, it is argued that Old Spanish does not belong to any known V2 type of language, even the most flexible/relaxed attested type – the latter defined as mandatory verb movement from T-to-Fin/Force without the necessary raising of an XP to the… read more

Parametric comparison and dialect variation: Insights from Southern ItalyRomance Languages and Linguistic Theory 14: Selected papers from the 46th Linguistic Symposium on Romance Languages (LSRL), Stony Brook, NY, Repetti, Lori and Francisco Ordóñez (eds.), pp. 103–133 | Chapter
This paper applies the Parametric Comparison Method (PCM) to the description of syntactic variation in the nominal domain in a representative subset of Romance dialects of Southern Italy. We observe that, in order to perform successfully at the level of micro-comparison, the method must be… read more
Eide, Kristine Gunn and Ioanna Sitaridou 2014 Contrastivity and information structure in the old Ibero-Romance languagesInformation Structure and Syntactic Change in Germanic and Romance Languages, Bech, Kristin and Kristine Gunn Eide (eds.), pp. 377–412 | Article
In this article, we discuss how contrastivity can be identified in historical texts where we have no direct access to prosodic features such as stress and intonation. We depart from our knowledge of contrastivity in the modern languages and their exponence in Modern Spanish and Portuguese, where… read more
One Pontic Greek variety, Romeyka of Of, Turkey, today preserves a robust infinitive usage. Comparing the current infinitival distribution in Romeyka with previous stages of Greek, I argue that: (a) the Romeyka infinitive has roots in Ancient Greek due to preservation of the construction prin… read more
The aim of this article is twofold: (a) To evaluate the learned source for the rise of personal infinitives in the history of Spanish, and (b) to address the issue of the origin of personal infinitives from the perspective of language acquisition. It is argued, by means of novel empirical evidence… read more
The case system of Greek has undergone extensive changes, most notably loss of the dative and reorganisation of the genitive. The clear winner of this situation is the accusative. In this paper we investigate one more instance whereby the accusative wins out over the genitive: the loss of the… read more
