Typological Scandinavian Syntax

In 2002 I published a monograph “Typological Scandinavian Syntax”, where I offered a complete parametric description of clausal syntax in 5 modern Scandinavian languages (Danish, Swedish, Norwegian, Icelandic, Faeroese), Old Norse and Middle Mainland Scandinavian and traced the change in parameter values during the last 1000 years. The first part of this monograph is devoted to issues in word order, the second part — to predicate-argument relations. The Russian version was published in 2002 and to that moment was the most comprehensive publication on the subject, its volume being about 900 pages.
I am currently preparing an English version of this book and making some revisions in it.
