This volume explores the interplay of syntactic variation and genre. How do genres emerge and what is the role of syntax in constituting them? Why do certain constructions appear in certain types of text? The articles in this book include both overviews of theoretical approaches to the concept of genre in linguistics and data-based analyses of specific syntactic phenomena in English, German, and Romance.
