Language Change and the Historical Grammar of the Germanic Languages

This block seminar focuses on the nature/mechanisms of language change. To this end, the relation between sound change and analogy will be investigated, exemplified by selected case studies from the Germanic languages. It is intended for students of historical and general linguistics, Germanic, Scandinavian, as well as Romance linguistics. Basic knowledge of linguistics and historical linguistics is convenient but not necessary.
