The Syntax of Old Romanian

Isabela Nedelcu

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents the behaviour of prepositions in OR, and the changes in the inventory and properties of prepositions in the passage from old to modern Romanian. It focuses on the usage of all types of prepositions in OR, the polysemic nature of certain prepositions, and the dynamics of the class of prepositions. Special attention is given to the syntactic restrictions imposed by prepositions to their complements (case, determination, and number restrictions) and to the differences from the present-day usage.

Keywords:   lexical preposition, functional preposition, subcategorized preposition, formal restriction, complementation, modifier
