ON TWO TYPES OF SCRAMBLED WORD ORDER IN OLD ENGLISH
MetadataShow full item record
This is a Minimalist account of Scrambling in two types of O(ld) E(nglish) constructions wherein the scrambled orders are described as involving leftward movement of both objects to the left periphery of VP, viz. Vfin-IO(Dat)DO(Acc)-Vnon-fin and Vfin-DO(Acc)-IO(Dat)-Vnon-fin. The approach adopted here assumes that Scrambling is an optional (= non-feature-triggered) displacement operation that moves internal Arguments (and Adjuncts) into left-phrasallyadjoined positions before Spell-Out and that this is semantically and pragmatically effective.
