Syntactic Weight vs. Information Structure and Word Order Variation in Polish.
Siewierska, Anna
Journal of Linguistics, v29 n2 p233-65 Sep 1993
An analysis of Polish transitive clause order is presented from the perspective of two competing word order principles: the form-driven principle of syntactic weight proposed by Hawkins and the pragmatically based Topic-Comment principle. The Topic-Comment principle is shown to be more consistently reflected in Polish transitive order. (Contains 32 references.) (LB)
