The present volume contains research results of the international co‐operation project Competing forms of expression in Indo‐European Syntax: The Syntax of Participle according to its Morphology, the Syntax of Sentence according to its Constituents, sponsored by the Fritz von Thyssen Foundation in Germany and with Principal Investigators Paola Cotticelli Kurras (University of Verona, Italy) and Velizar Sadovski (Austrian Academy of Sciences).
The historical and comparative studies of this linguistic subject first started as a co‐operation in the framework of the long‐term research programme Indogermanische Grammatik and the homonymous monograph series founded by Jerzy Kuryłowicz, continued by Manfred Mayrhofer, and edited by Thomas Lindner in Heidelberg, in which Paola Cotticelli Kurras is responsible for vol. V, Indo‐European Syntax, Fascicle 5: Participles and Fascicle VIII: Syntax of sentence, and Velizar Sadovski for vol. IV, Word‐Formation of Indo‐European, Fascicle 2a: Nominal Derivation and Part 2b: Verbal Derivation. The research cluster dealing with aspects of morphosyntactic competition on the level of expression has been carried on between 2014 and 2016. It has been distinguished by the Thyssen Foundation by generous financing of two special researchers’ positions for Alfredo Rizza and Michael Frotscher, whose article are also included in this volume. Beside the preparation of the monographs, in the course of the project work the Editors organized an international Symposium under the title In Participle We Predicate that took place at the University of Verona in 2014.
Thus the present volume unites studies of the Project team with relevant contributions of a number of participants in this Symposium from Austria, Germany, and Italy, on topics of morphology and syntax of infinite verbal forms in Ancient Indo‐European languages.
