Relative Clause Structure, Relative Clause Perception, and the Change from SOV to SVO.
Antinucci, Francesco; And Others
Cognition, v7 n2 p145-76 Jun 1979
This study presents a view of diachronic change in language which focuses on the conflicting interaction of principles determining language organization. Principles of structural and perceptual nature are in conflict in language of the Subject-Object-Verb (SOV) type, because of the relative clause construction. Theoretical and empirical evidence is reviewed. (Author/RD)
