Contents:
On reciprocal and reflexive uses of anaphors in German and other European languagesThoughts on the origin, progress, and pronominal status of reciprocal forms in Germanic, occasioned by those of Bavarian; Irreducible symmetry in reciprocal constructions; The inherently reflexive and the inherently reciprocal predicate in Hungarian: Each to their own argument structure; The Syntax of Reciprocal Verbs: An Overview; Anaphoric dependenc
Summary: This collection of original papers is a representative survey of recent theoretical and cross-linguistic work on reciprocity and reflexivity. Its most remarkable feature is its combination of formal approaches, case studies on individual languages and broad typological surveys in one volume, showing that the interaction of formal approaches to grammar and typology may lead to new insights and results for both fields. Among the major issues addressed in this volume are the following: How can our current knowledge about the space and limits of variation in the relevant domain be captured in a st.
