520    The issue of permanence and change of word-order patterns 
       has long been debated in both historical linguistics and 
       structural theories. The interest in this theme has been 
       revamped by contemporary research in typology with its 
       emphasis on correlation or 'harmonies' of structures of 
       word-order as explicative principles of both synchronic 
       and diachronic processes. The aim of this book is to 
       stimulate a critical reconsideration of perspectives and 
       methods in the study of continuities and discontinuities 
       of word-order patterns. Bringing together contributions by
       specialists of various theoretical backgrounds and with 
       expertise in different language families or groups 
       (Caucasian, Hamito-Semitic, and - among Indo-European - 
       Hittite, Greek, Celtic, Germanic, Slavonic, Romance), the 
       book addresses issues like the notions of stability, 
       variation and change of word-order and their 
       interrelations, the interplay of syntactic and pragmatic 
       factors, and the role of internal and external factors in 
       synchronic and diachronic dynamics of word-order. The book
       contains a selection of papers presented at a workshop 
       held at the XIII International Conference on Historical 
       Linguistics (Düsseldorf, August 1997) and additonal 
       invited contributions
