The book describes a large fragment of German in terms of the HPSG paradime. On a broad empirical basis it develops a formally explicit theory with special emphasis on various word-order phenomena: the relatively free position of constituents in the Mittelfeld also considering coherent constructions, positioning in the verbal complex, fronting, and extraposition. The analysis of these phenomena is embedded in a general theory of sentence structure and a discussion of relevant formal mechanisms.
This book is written in German. It is a detailed documentation of the linguistic theory of the Babel-System.
