Variation and Change in the Scandinavian Verb Phrase

About the project

The Scandinavian languages have a long joint history, and they often show parallel historical developments. However, there are cases where they show divergence, and in interesting ways. Little is known about these diverging developments. The project Variation and Change in the Scandinavian Verb Phrase wants to remedy this by looking at all of the Scandinavian languages from the end of the 17th century to the present. Considerable advances in the knowledge of the modern languages now make the historical study feasible, and important for continued progress.
