New publication
This volume, which has been edited by the ZAS researches Werner Frey, André Meinunger and Kerstin Schwabe and just been published by John Benjamins, deals with sentential proforms and their relationship to their associated clauses. By providing syntactic, prosodic, semantic, psycholinguistic and corpus-based support, the book underpins the claim that there exist different sentential proform types in German and Dutch, that these proform types correlate with different verb classes, and that their associated related clauses are located in different syntactic positions.
