Indo-European syntax and pragmatics: contrastive approaches

This volume presents papers from the International Workshop on Indo-European Syntax held at the University of Georgia in Athens, Georgia in May 2009. The workshop was a cooperative effort between the Pragmatic Resources in Old Indo-European Languages (PROIEL) project at the University of Oslo and the University of Georgia. The papers in the volume study the interaction between syntax and discourse structure in various old Indo-European languages, in most cases with an explicitly contrastive focus.
