About the Author

Jan Terje Faarlund is a professor of Scandinavian linguistics at the University of Oslo. He has earlier held the same position at the University of Trondheim, and he has been a professor of linguistics and Norwegian studies at the University of Chicago, where he is still affiliated as a research associate in the Department of Linguistics. His research interests and publications are mainly in the fields of Scandinavian languages, historical syntax, syntactic theory, typology, and Meso-American languages. Professor Faarlund has been a visiting professor at universities in Britain, Germany, Italy, Spain, Eastern Europe, Russia, and the US.


The last comprehensive presentation of Old Norse syntax existing to date...published in Dano-Norwegian in 1906. Faarlund's contribution is therefore a welcome edition being the first comprehensive treatment of Old Norse syntax in a century and being the very first edition of such a volume in English. ... The discreet introduction of theoretical nuances (e.g. referential phrases) and the wealth of empirical data make this text of great interest not only for historical linguistics but also for those involved in more theoretical research. ...a tremendous success. * Linguist List 16.3576 *
