P1: Nominal morphosyntax and word order in Heritage Greek across majority languages

Artemis Alexiadou, HU Berlin

This project aims to investigate to which extent the varieties of heritage Greek in Germany and
in the U.S. show novel grammatical patterns in the domain of nominal morphosyntax and word
order. P1 will focus on: (i) nominal morphosyntax and word order within the DP, and its
interaction with (ii) word order phenomena in the clausal domain, in particular, the left periphery,
verb placement, and the relationship between word order and information structure. In line with
RUEG's overall approach, P1 examines the status of noncanonical patterns, in systematic
comparisons with monolingual speakers, including informal registers, from the point of view of
our three joint ventures (JVs) targeting the systematicity of new developments (JVI 'Language
change hypothesis'), their placement at external vs. internal interfaces (JVII 'Interface
Hypothesis'), and their contact-induced source (contact-induced change vs. language internal
dynamics, JVIII 'Internal Dynamics Hypothesis').
