Occitan, verb second and the Medieval Romance word order debate
This study presents a discussion of the word order properties of Old Occitan, a Medieval Romance language which remains under-studied in comparison to many of its sister languages. I argue that it was a V2 system and in particular that the locus of the V2 property was a low left-peripheral head, namely Fin, yielding a descriptively ‘relaxed’ V2 grammar, with systematic V-to-Fin 0 movement but widespread verb-third or more orders. Data are presented from a wide range of related properties that show that Occitan occupies a unique position within the wider typology of V2 languages.
