Sten Vikner - Foredragsholder

The paper has two goals:
· a more global one, viz. to present an overview of the variation concerning verb particles across the Germanic languages, and
· a more local one, to use some of this variation data to argue for Yiddish being an SOV-language like German and Dutch rather than an SVO-language like English and the Scandinavian languages.
