Converging verbal phrases in related languages
A case study from Faro-Danish and Danish-German language contact situations
The paper deals with Danish-Faroese and Danish-German language contact, in particular Faro-Danish and Danish-German verb phrases that are constructed under heavy influence of Faroese and German, respectively. The theoretical framework is the Abstract Level Model (2002) as well as further developments by Fredsted (2008) and K. Kühl (2008). The focus of the work described is on the process and the results of convergence. It will be shown how semantic information, syntactic information (predicate-argument-structure) and the morphological realization patterns are transferred extensively from one language to another, without this being evidenced by an insertional kind of code-switching.
