Word Order and Scrambling introduces readers to recent research into the linguistic phenomenon called scrambling. The contributions, from some of the leading authorities in the field, explore major issues including the factors responsible for word order variations, how the scrambled constructions are processed, and whether these variations are available in early child language development and in second language acquisition. The book discusses a number of typologically diverse languages including Persian, Japanese, and Navajo, and provides enlightening information on different aspects of word order variation and the consequences for our understanding of the nature of human language. Word Order and Scrambling is a valuable contribution to the fields of theoretical linguistics, psycholinguistics, and applied linguistics.
