Brandt, Patrick and Eric Fuß 2017 A corpus-based analysis of pronoun choice in German relative clausesCurrent trends in analyzing syntactic variation, De Cuypere, Ludovic, Clara Vanderschueren and Gert de Sutter (eds.), pp. 195–218 | Article

We show that das requires a lexical head noun, while in all other cases was is usually the preferred option; therefore, the distribution of das and was is… read more

The fact that þa/þonne ‘then’ trigger V2 in OE is commonly accounted for by assuming that these adverbs are operators that trigger V-to-C movement. This paper presents an alternative analysis based on the observation that þa/þonne and pronouns are in complementary distribution in preverbal position. read more
