The Twelfth International Conference on Historical Linguistics, which is the major forum for the presentation of work in progress in the field of diachronic linguistics, took place at the University of Manchester in August 1995. The quality and breadth of the abstracts submitted for the general programme was such that four parallel sessions were needed throughout the conference. The present volume contains selected papers which deal with the Germanic languages. A companion volume, edited by J.C. Smith and Delia Bentley, contains papers on general problems in historical linguistics and studies of non-Germanic languages. The conference reflected the current health of diachronic linguistics. There were more papers and more participants than at past conferences, and the discussion covered a broader range of languages than hitherto. Sometimes it has been possible to isolate a particular preoccupation which has dominated much of the conference; but the overall impression to be gained from the Manchester meeting was one of stimulating diversity — the discipline appears to be moving forward on many fronts simultaneously, yet without losing focus. This stimulating diversity is well reflected in this important collection.

Valency occupies a special place in German linguistics. It not only features prominently in newer grammars of German but has also inspired a wealth of lexicographic work, often of a contrastive nature. The concept has also triggered a fierce theoretical discussion over the last 15 years which has, to the surprise of some, strengthened rather than weakened its central place in grammatography. The papers in this volume examine the continuing importance of valency as a dynamic force within linguistics - which has evolved in a number of directions in recent years and has stimulated much fruitful debate - and also offer insights into the practical application of valency theory in a number of areas. Several papers embody recent theoretical thinking, including its interface with general theories of human language, while the majority of contributions are devoted to the discussion of practical applications which involve a substantial element of contrastive study. Die Valenztheorie hat eine besondere Stellung in der germanistischen Linguistik. Sie spielt nicht nur eine zentrale Rolle in den neueren Grammatiken des Deutschen, sondern sie hat auch eine erhebliche Anzahl an lexikographischen Projekten (oft kontrastiver Natur) angeregt. Um den Valenzbegriff wurde in den letzten 15 Jahren eine zum Teil erbitterte theoretische Diskussion gefuhrt, die - und dies kam fur Kritiker uberraschend - seine zentrale Bedeutung in der Grammatiktheorie eher gestarkt als geschwacht hat. Dieser Sammelband zeugt von der theoretischen Dynamik der gegenwartigen Valenzdebatte: In mehreren Beitragen werden jungste Theorieentwicklungen angesprochen, u. a. die Einbindung von Valenz in eine allgemeine Sprachtheorie. Danebenbefasst sich der Band mit praktischen Anwendungen von Valenz uberwiegend aus einer kontrastiven Perspektive.
