A Few Remarks on the Left Periphery in Indo-European

Research output: Contribution to conferenceOtherpeer-review


The paper is organized as follows: the first section describes the different perspectives which separate generative historical linguistics and conventional comparative philology; since a generative approach to Indo-European linguistics does not appear more hypothetical than the way of dealing with de syntax of the ancestor language adopted by conventional comparative philology, in the second section an attempt is made to apply the formal apparatus of generative grammar to Indo-European syntax by making some brief remarks about the so-called left periphery of the sentence of the proto-language.
